College of Education Academic Staff Union of the Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education otto/Ijanikin (AOCOED-COEASU), is urging the Governing Council of the institution to toe the line of honour and avoid systemic breakdown of the college.

The union which declared an indefinite strike on Monday,  June 24, 2019 said no amount of persuasion would make it shift ground.

Some of the requests, according to the union include: promotion criteria for members; poor electricity supply on campus; non-payment of 53.37 allowance arrears and new pension scheme for members.

Others are: upward review of teaching practice mobilisation fee; new pension scheme; revival of IGR programmes; outstanding honorarias; as well as established of college bookshops, among others.

Members of the union had on Thursday last week staged a standing congress to the management. The action was proceeded by a seven working day ultimatum to management. Another three-day ultimatum was also given last Thursday which expired on Monday before COEASU eventually declared an indefinite strike after a lengthy congress.
