The Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union, (COEASU) lecturers have suspended their ongoing strike for a period of 60 days.
COEASU President, Dr Smart Olugbeko and the General Secretary of the union, Dr Ahmed Bazza made the announcement in a statement on Friday.
The strike was called off following “enormous progress” made at the ongoing renegotiation with the Federal Government.
”The decision to suspend the strike was taken at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Abuja, to re-assess the status of issues leading to the three-week roll-over of the national strike,” they said.
Olugbeko further stated that the enormous progress made at the ongoing renegotiation and the appreciable level of progress made towards the amendment of the Colleges of Education Establishment Act, were paramount for the development of the COE system.
He added that the suspension will give the government the opportunity to perfect the progress made so far and NEC will reconvene to re-assess the status of the issues and decide the way forward.
Olugbeko commended critical stakeholders for their intervention and dogged commitment to the resolution of the issues.
