The leadership of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Delta State Council, has expressed willingness to suspend the strike action by Teachers in public primary and secondary schools in the state.

Addressing a press conference after a meeting with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at the Governor’s Lodge, Warri, on Thursday, the Chairman of NUT in Delta State, Comrade Jonathan Jemirieyigbe, disclosed that the meeting was fruitful and that the strike action would be called off within few days.

“Between now and Monday, we will call off the strike, we had a very fruitful discussion with the governor,” he said, adding: “We are Deltans and the Governor, Senator Okowa, is a good man, dealing with us the way fathers deal with their children.”

The union leaders described Governor Okowa as labour-friendly, saying it was wrong for a section of the media to portray him in bad light as a result of the sit-at-home action embarked upon by teachers in the state from Monday.

Governor Okowa, on his part, expressed hope that the teachers would go back to the classroom. “We had a fruitful meeting and we discussed issues concerning the teachers and how to move our state forward,” he said.

Among those who were present at the meeting were Special Adviser to the Governor on Labour Matters, Comrade Mike Okeme, select local government chairmen top members of the NUT.
