They have threatened to stop the sales of beef in markets if the Federal Government fails to find a lasting solution to the strike.

The group who gathered at the Miyetti Allah headquarters in Nasarawa expressed their disappointment over the poor handling of the issue relating to lecturers’ pay which has kept Nigerian students at home for months.

Speaking on behalf of the herdsmen, the national president of the association, Alhaji Abdullahi Bodejo, faulted the attitude of the government towards education and urged President Goodluck Jonathan to re-negotiate with the aggrieved union, in order to find a lasting solution to the strike in the interest of students and the country.

“If the federal government refuses to listen to the lecturers, we have no choice than to stop the supply of meat to markets and our women from selling milk (fura da nunu).

“We have been making efforts to enlighten our people about education, but the government is not encouraging us at all,” he said.

He further urged the union to consider the situation and return to class in the interests of Nigerian students.
