Academic and non-academic staff unions of the Oyo State College of Agriculture and Technology (OSCATECH), Igboora, on Thursday, suspended their four months old strike.

Chairman, Joint Action Committee of the state-owned institutions, Mr Babatunde Adeniyi, disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday evening.

He explained that decision to suspend the industrial strike was in giving heed to Thursday’s request by traditional rulers, political leaders, community leaders of Ibarapa Central Local Government for two weeks to meet with Governor Abiola Ajimobi over the lingering impasse.

“We had a meeting with traditional rulers and opinion leaders, political leaders in Ibarapa land invited us for a meeting and they requested for two weeks for them to intervene and meet with Governor.

We told them point-blank that we desired to meet with Governor Abiola Ajimobi himself and they requested for two weeks to met with the governor. So, we decided to heed this request and suspended the strike for only two weeks,” Adeniyi stated.

The strike suspension came hours after students of Oyo State College of Agriculture (OSCATECH), Igbo Ora and Emmanuel Alayande College of Education (EACOED), Oyo, under the auspices of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) protested in Ibadan on the lingering strike.

In light of the suspension, management of OSCATECH has asked students to resume for academic activities next Monday.

The announcement contained in a statement by Registrar of the institution, Niyi Fehintola, the management lauded the role of traditional rulers and community leaders in Ibarapa Central Local Government in ensuring that the strike was suspended.
