SSANU, NASU begin seven-day warning strike

The action was taken by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of both unions.

A statement, titled: Commencement of a Seven-Day Warning Strike, by NASU General Secretary Peters Adeyemi and SSANU President Mohammed Ibrahim, reads: “The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of NASU and SSANU has inundated the Federal Government with the need to pay the withheld four months’ salaries of our members in the Federal universities and inter-university centres, as done for our academic counterpart to no avail.”

“As a matter of fact, the attention of the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, and the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman (SAN), was called to this injustice and unfair treatment of our members in our letter referenced JAC/NS/VOL.II/277, dated February 13, 2024 and to also inform them to resolve the issue positively before it leads to unnecessary upheaval in our university sector.

“In a similar vein, a press release was issued on March 1, 2024 and the Federal Government was given a seven-day ultimatum to do the needful in respect of the payment of the withheld four months’ salaries but nothing was done on the same.
