The Edo State Chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has issued a 21-day ultimatum to the State Government to provide adequate funding for education.
The ultimatum is contained in a nine-point communiqué, issued in Benin on Sunday.
The document was signed by the Chairman of the NUT in the state, Mr Pius Okhueleigbe, and the Acting Secretary, Mr Mike Itua.
The association warned that the government would face dire consequences if it failed to meet the demands of the body before the expiration of the ultimatum.
The union demanded immediate release of funds to cater for primary and secondary schools in the state.
