    Hope Jonathan and his Team will stand by the agreement.
    Some ladies may need to suspend the semester/session due to
    pregnancy while some very few will not resume with their colleagues
    due to untimely death via vehicle accidents (bad Naija roads),
    sickness etal. University Lecturers will now smile all the way to
    Banksssssssssssssssssssss ooooooooooooooo. Congrats jare. But
