The Senior Staff Union of Colleges of Education, Nigeria (SSUCOEN) has threatened to go on strike.

The union, which gave the Federal Government two weeks ultimatum, demanded the implementation of the agreement reached with it five years ago.

This was contained in a statement in Kano by the National Financial Secretary of the union, Aminu Auwal.

The President of the union, Msheliza Ali Danladi, lamented the poor state of infrastructure and welfare of workers in the colleges of education across the country.

Danladi spoke after its 25th National Executive Council (NEC) meeting at Obudu, Cross Rivers State.
T
he union asked the government to address the persistent shortfall in members’ salaries since 2015.

It is also seeking to reverse the poor funding of federal and state colleges of education, as well as the non-implementation of consolidated salaries of registrars and bursars.

The SSUCOEN urged the Federal Government to honour the agreement it or face an industrial action.

It accused government of paying lip service to teachers’ training institutions in the country, which it said, could affect the entire education sector.
