Recall that the unions had embarked on strike since March 27 to press home their demands.

Adeyemi explained that the decision to suspend the strike was taken after negotiation between the unions and the government team led by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

He said, “When we presented the offers that the government made to our members, they thought that since the majority of the issues that are in contention have been substantially addressed by the government, the strike is hereby suspended effective on August 24.”

Also, SSANU, in a statement signed by its President, Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, said the meeting between the unions and the government was satisfactory.

“The two months window is in the nature of a ceasefire and doesn’t represent a closure on the industrial action.

“In view of the above, NASU and SSANU members are hereby directed to resume duties on Wednesday, August 24,” he said.
