SSANU, NASU Extend Warning Strike For Two Weeks




Just In: Ngige Withdraws From 2023 Presidential Race

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) of Education and Associated Institutions have extended their warning strike by two weeks.

It would be recalled that the non-academic staff commenced their industrial action on Sunday, March 27 after announcing that the strike was necessitated due to the government’s failure to meet their demands.

The news of the extension was contained in a circular signed by the SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, and NASU General Secretary, Peters Adeyemi.

The circular titled ‘Re: Commencement of two-week warning strike’ was addressed to the chairmen of NASU and SSANU in universities and inter-university centres.

The circular read in part, “Deriving from the failure of the Federal Government to act positively on the ongoing warning strike, JAC hereby directs members to continue with the warning stoke for another two weeks, hoping that within the period the government wi11 be in a position to address these issues.

“However, if the present situation persists, members of NASU and SSANU will be adequately informed about the next line of action before the expiration of the additional two weeks.”
