Chairman of the association, Isiaka Adekunle, said their decision to resume work was in response to appeals from residents despite the fact that the government was yet to meet any of group’s demands.
He said the association would continue to dialogue with the government.
Adekunle appealed to the government to keep to its promises by not victimising its members who participated in the strike.
