Oyo teachers fail to resume despite governor's order

12 July 2016, 21:41

Ibadan - Striking public school teachers in Oyo State defied the State government's orders to resume work on Monday.

Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi had on Saturday directed teachers to return to their posts on Monday. However, Oyo State NLC leader Waheed Olojede encouraged teachers to defy this order, saying that they should not resume work until the State gives in to the teachers' demands.

According to Punch, some students reported to their classes in schools in Ibadan, the State capital, but there were no teachers present.

It was gathered that some parents are prohibiting their children from returning to school until the dispute between teachers and the State government is resolved.

The state government has formed a fourteen-person committee consisting of seven representatives each from the government and the NLC towards reaching an agreement that would end the strike.

The schools were shut last month following the engagements of some students in anti-government protest according to Thisday.
