Emergency meeting of COEASU AOCOED was presided over by the Chairman was held in ETF on Monday, 10th December, 2018. He explained that the suspension of National body strike of Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) were base on agreement.

He said: It was not the National president that really suspended the strike. It was suspended to observe the government. Please know that there is difference between suspension and calling off. If by January the agreement is not meant by the government, COEASU may go back to strike. However, AOCOED will benefit nothing less than 250 million naira if COEASU is being attended to which we are optimistic.

While addressing internal issues of AOCOED, he lamented that despite efforts of the Union to reach a meaningful conclusion with the management, it proves abortive. He stressed that no assurance from the management to meet our demands.

Mr Oluwasegun while reacting to Chairman’s speech commended executive members of AOCOED COEASU. He said: “they have done their job as expected from their report. For the national Union, government gave them assurance but in our case, there is no assurance”.

Another lecturer who spoke in confidence urged member to use their personalities to rescue AOCOED case. He suggested that COEASU AOCOED should protest to Alausa.

As at the time of filling this report, there in no concrete resolution reached on how to tackled the issues at hand but it seems lecturers will go back to class and devise another means to continue the struggle. Some lecturers are seeing lamenting that they are tired of strike while some want it to continue.
