COEASU: Colleges Of Education Lecturers Begin Strike Monday

The academic staff of the Colleges of education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) in the country has indicated that it would embark on a seven-day warning strike from next Monday.

According to the public relations officer of the FCE Obudu chapter of COEASU, Mr Aniashie Akpanke, “there is no going back on the union’s resolve to join their counterparts nationwide to press home several demands for which the federal government has been turning deaf ears to.”

In a statement made available to LEADERSHIP Weekend, Akpanke, who noted that a copy of the union’s resolutions had been forwarded to the minister for education, added that “the seven-day strike was ignited with a peaceful procession by all members of the union in black attire around the College and some major streets in Obudu town in defiance of the heavy downpour in the area at the time of the procession.”

It added: “Presenting the resolutions to the congress, the FCE Obudu chapter chairman of COEASU, Dr. Peter Betiang, noted that the union’s resolve to embark on a warning strike was predicated on the government’s double standard and lack of genuine commitment to resolving the enormous problems bedevilling the education sector.”
