According to the protestors, they were forced to continue the protest, as government didn't pay any attention in fulfilling their demands. Their demands include, implementing the ministeral level decisions on September 2, 2022 that guaranteed a salary scale of non-gazette II class officer for accountants. Other demands include implementation of Federal Education Act and making the school's non-teaching staffs permanent.
