TVC News gathered that the unions conveyed the suspension of the strike in a communiqué jointly signed by their General Secretaries — Abdul-ganiyu Braimah (ASUP), Omonekhai Shaka (SSANIP) and Solomon Aliabakhalumhe (NASU).
The communique was signed after a Joint Action Congress (JAC) meeting.

“We hereby suspend the strike, and workers are directed to resume their duties,’’ the communique read in part.
The unions went on strike to press home their demands for the enrollment of the members of staff into CONTISS 15 Migration Salary Structure for levels 11 downwards and payment of promotion arrears, among others.
