Speaking on behalf of the union on Monday in Jalingo, the state capital, the chairman, Aliyu Jauro Mafindi, stated that the industrial action may last until when the state government shows “sincere commitments” to clearing the backlog of wages.

Mafindi, recalled that the union had recently embarked upon on a three-day warning strike which it later suspended as government called the union officials for talks.

“After the suspension of the strike, government side representatives were expected to see His Excellency, the governor, with the agreement for his consideration and possible approval, but since then there was no any serious action or committal statement from the side of the government,” Mr. Mafindi said.

“At the exco meeting, it was unanimously resolved that all teachers in public primary schools in Taraba State should immediately proceed on an indefinite strike action until further notice”.
