Specifically speaking about its discussions with the Rivers State Government, Akere said several efforts to get the state governor, Nyesom Wike to fulfil its promises had failed.

Akere also decried a shortfall in manpower in the primary and secondary schools of the state.

He tells anchor, Dayo Elusakin that the union may down tools soon if nothing is done to change the current situation of teachers in the state.
