Consequently, the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT, Bayelsa State Wing) has therefore suspend the ongoing strike action with immediate effect.

A statement issued on Tuesday by the Chairman of the State Wing of NUT, Kalaama John Tonpre, and Secretary, Johnson Hector, expressed appreciation to the state government for its gesture, as it would go a long way in alleviating their plight.

Others who endorsed the statement are the Chairmen of 5 LGAs, including the Vice Chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) in the state, Kuroghofa Walter Benwari and its Secretary, Ebiango Egain.

The resolution to stop the strike, the union said, was reached after exhaustive deliberations between the various LGAs and Executives of the NUT in Yenagoa.

According to the statement, the NUT expressed appreciation to the state government for its financial assistance and resolved that, the local government councils were to facilitate the payment of the February 2017 salaries to teachers.

The statement further stated that no teacher would be victimised by any local government council in the state for participating in the industrial action, adding that other issues raised by the NUT would be subsequently addressed.
