Ogun Pry & Sec. School Teachers Suspends Strike, Resumes Work

Ogun State primary and secondary school teachers, who have been on strike for about two weeks, on Tuesday 27th Jan 2015, suspended the strike. They took this decision after a meeting between the leadership of the Nigeria Union of Teachers and Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools in the state and the state government. The teachers went  on strike two weeks ago. See the full details as reported by Punch Newspaper.


The NUT chairman, Dare Ilekoya, and his counterpart in ASUSS, Akeem Lasisi, jointly announced that the strike had been called off after a congress of the two bodies held at NUT Hall, Abeokuta

Ilekoya, while explaining reasons for their decision, said the government had shown willingness to look into their demands.

He said the government also agreed to pay the October deductions with immediate effect,while outstanding would also be paid subsequently as state’s Internally Generated Revenue improves.

Ilekoya added that the government had agreed to set up a committee involving all stakeholders to review other outstanding issues.

Lasisi appealed to members to comply with the union’s directive and return to work, but warned that the strike would resume if the government failed to honour its agreement with the teachers.
