According to NAN, Bentse Pamson, the union chairman, broke the news on Wednesday.

“We agreed on the suspension of the strike after we deliberated with the State Government’s 7-man Negotiation Committee headed by the State Head of Service, Mr Azi Izang, and signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with them on Tuesday,” the union chairman said.

“Consequently, around 12.00am on Wednesday, we decided as a union to only suspend our strike and not to call it off, pending how committed and prudently the state government will implement the agreement it reached with us.

“By this, it means any breach of the terms of agreement shall see us resume the strike in full force.”

He regretted that the strike dragged up to March, considering its effects on the students of the university, whom he said: “have been pleading with us to call off the strike to allow for resumption of academic activities in the institution”.

The union had embarked on the industrial action on January 15 2021 over issues bordering on allowances and infrastructure development.
