COEASU THREATENS STRIKE, ACCUSES FG OF FAILED PROMISES

The Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU), North-Central zone, has warned the Federal Government that it will go on strike if it fails to address the union’s legitimate demands.

The union declared this in a statement signed by its vice president and zonal coordinator, Noah Danlami, in Kaduna on Thursday.

It cautioned the regime and state governments that failure to address the legitimate demands with the urgency they deserve, would cripple the college of education system.

The union stressed that the inaction of the government would leave all colleges of education in the zone with no option than to participate in a strike declared by its national body.

According to the union, the outright neglect by governments to the plight of the colleges of education has adversely affected the smooth running of these institutions.

“COEASU North-Central zone hopes that government at all levels and other critical stakeholders in the education sector will not allow the situation to degenerate to industrial disharmony. This will be counterproductive to the realisation of the laudable goals for which Colleges of Education were established and the general growth and development of the education sector of our nation,” the union said.

The National Executive Council of the union on May 11 gave Mr Buhari’s regime a 21-day ultimatum to meet its demands or face industrial action.

Some of the issues, according to the union, include Mr Buhari’s refusal to renegotiate the 2010 agreement and the refusal to adopt UTAS platform for payment of salaries of universities and other tertiary institutions, including the regime’s refusal to release the N15 billion revitalisation fund promised in 2019, in addition to the N478 billion outstanding Presidential Needs Assessment Fund Agreement.
