The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) in Kaduna State has called off its indefinite strike. The chairman of NUT Kaduna state chapter, Titus Amba, announced the calling off of the strike in a statement jointly signed by himself and the assistant secretary of the union, Adamu Ango.

The 10-day strike began on Monday, January 8th, in protest of the sack of 21,780 teachers in the public primary schools by the state government for failing a controversial competency test in June 2017.

The body said the call off became necessary after the government offered the sacked teachers another opportunity for consideration under the State Universal Education Board (SUBEB) programme of continuous recruitment.

The statement reads in part:

 “The State Wing Executive Council (SWEC) of NUT Kaduna commends the above decision of the governor and sees in it an opportunity to resolve the impasse between the teachers in Kaduna State and the state government; the end results of which will be an improvement in service delivery in our public schools. 

“In the light of the above, SWEC unanimously resolved to reciprocate the gesture of the Kaduna State government by calling off with immediate effect the indefinite strike embarked upon by teachers in the public schools and secondary schools in Kaduna State. SWEC hereby extends its hand of fellowship to the Kaduna State government and implore it to always engage the NUT in all matters relating to the implementation of service delivery in the education sector and teachers’ welfare”.
