The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that NUEE had, on Dec. 11, embarked on an indefinite strike, following the expiration of the 21-day ultimatum given to the Federal Government.

Comrade Joe Ajaero, General Secretary of the NUEE says: “Following the agreement reached between NUEE and representatives of government this morning, on all the issues in contention, the Union wishes to suspend the industrial action it embarked upon to press home these demands. Consequently, members are urged to return to their duty posts while we monitor the implementation of these agreements. We would not hesitate to resume action if the agreements are not implemented.”

“The parties involved should, without delay, refer the issues to the Ministry of Labour and Employment for mediation rather than embark on another strike that will do the economy more harm,” Olawale said.
