We go to every meeting with open mind and also believe the government will come with open mind and if they (government officials) mean well, we will resolve the issue,” he is quoted by Punch as saying.

“Our demands are clear, seven issues with timelines. They are expected to have started implementing them; we don’t see much problem here.

“They will just tell us how far they have implemented them and tell us which ones they cannot implement for now, and give us the time frame (for implementation),” Ogunyemi said.
