AOCOED lecturers suspend strike, resume work

Striking lecturers at Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED), Ijanikin, Lagos, have resumed work following the suspension of the monthlong strike called by Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU).
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria, who visited the institution on Friday, reports that the lecturers were back in the classrooms teaching students.
In addition, other workers were also seen in their duty posts, signifying the gradual restoration of business at the institution.

The demands of the union include; immediate commencement of payment of 53.3 per cent allowances and arrears; N350 million bailout; stable electricity supply and improved internally generated revenue.
AOCOED COEASU Chairman, Mr Ige Ajayi, told NAN in Lagos that the congress appreciated the concern of the Special Adviser on Education concerning their demands after the emergency congress of the union.
“They have commenced the payment of our transport and hazard arrears, at least they have paid 11 months which the payment started December 2019.
“Management of the institution have also started negotiation with the electricity company in order to get constant electricity supply in all the offices and lecture rooms.
