The Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union, COEASU, has said that it will decide if the union will embark on an indefinite strike or not on July 19.

Speaking in an interview, the National President of COEASU, Dr. Smart Olugbeko, said the Federal Government is yet to reach out to the union after it met with the renegotiation committee headed by a former Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Colleges of Education, Professor Kabiru Ishaku, on June 29.

Dr. Oligbeko said it can be recalled that the union had embarked on a one-month warning strike on June 10, which ended on July 10. As a result, Olugbeko added that the National Executive Council of COEASU would meet on July 19, 2022, to review the progress recorded during the strike and take a decision.
