Another member who pleaded anonymity said “If anyone should move for vote of no conference , in fact everyone will second it. I actually want our most respected excos to tender apology letter to the whole NAAT members.

While reacting to the release, A member of NASU said “We are no more neutral, since our chairman has gone to sign letter with the other unions without our members consent. Well, it is a pity for our exco to put hand in what they never initiated.

Another member of the NASU who was bewildered by the decision of their Chairman to have signed the release said

“Is this not our Chairman’s signature? I think last time I checked, the Chairman directed us to be neutral. So, what has changed?
