Edo primary school teachers call off strike
The leadership of the Edo State Council of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), yesterday, suspended its 19-day-old indefinite strike.
A statement signed by the state Chairman of the union, Pius Okhueleigbe, Assistant Secretary General, Moni Mike, and three others said the suspension of the strike commenced on January 18 was made possible by the national leadership of the union.
The statement urged all public primary school heads and teachers in the state to resume work on Monday, 8th, February.
It advised that any form of victimisation against union leaders and members should be promptly reported to the union for necessary action, urging the state government to utilise the opportunity of the suspension to urgently address the union’s 10-point demands to restore hope and confidence between government and the union.
While appreciating the entire members of the union in the state for their unprecedented solidarity and sustenance of the strike for the past 19 days, it however, passed a vote of confidence on the state and branch leadership and its affiliates.
