The Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union has on 10th of August, 2022 suspended their Ongoing Nationwide strike. This was contained in a memo released by Kaduna state college of education Branch which read as thus;
“Congress Members may recall that our Chapter joined the National body in the resumption of the 2018 suspended national strike on the 14th June 2022 in order to press home the demands of the Union. The national strike action was informed by the failure of Government (Federal and State) to address lingering issues between Government and our Union. Union’s decision was disseminated in a communiqué that emanated from the COEASU National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held on the 10th of June 2022 at Federal College of Education Technical Asaba, Delta State.
By this notice, Congress is hereby informed that NEC met today 10th July, 2022 at the Ukeje Hall, NCCE building, Abuja, deliberated extensively and reviewed achievements so far since the declaration of the strike. The review of achievements indicated that Government has showed understanding and commitment to 95% of the Union demands and hence NEC unanimously agreed to suspend the strike for the next sixty (60) days.
Congress members are therefore called upon to resume duty beginning from Thursday 11th August 2022 CEC appreciate members for their support, cooperation and understanding while the strike lasted”
