Two months after lecturers embarked on strike, their union, Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU), has suspended the action.
President of the union, Mr. Nuhu Ogirima, said on Wednesday at a briefing in Abuja after its expanded National Executive Council meeting.
Ogirima said the suspension became necessary following reassurances from government to meet some of the key demands of the workers.
According to him, the suspension is to enable the government implement the agreements.
Ogirima, however, said the union will reconvene in January to re-access the government’s commitment and will not hesitate to resume the strike if it reneges in the agreement.
