He concluded that the National Conference “is not a democratic conference: it fails the most important mark of democratic decisions.
The universities lecturer’s union condemned the abduction of over 200 school girls of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok urging the Federal Government to take urgent steps in rescuing them.
