The state’ s Chairman of the union , Mr Ariks Bashayi, made it known at the suspension on Wednesday in Lafia, shortly after the union ’ s emergency meeting .
In his statement , the suspension of the strike is due to the commitment shown by the State Government through the authorities of the three tertiary institutions owned by the state .

“ The State Government and other stakeholders appealed to the union to call - off the strike to pave way for further negotiations . ”

The chairman called on members of the union to resume work immediately, pending further directives from the union .
