Following the recent threats by the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) to go on strike if a meeting with the Federal Government failed to grant their demands on the payment of Earned Allowance and rejection of the NEEDS Assessment Report in the university system, students in various institutions of higher learning have pleaded with both parties to consider the fate of students.
Rising from its NEC meeting held at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, last week, the President of SSANU, Comrade Samson Ugwoke, said the varsity workers may have no option than to commence a nationwide strike after the meeting with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), slated to hold on the 19th April, fails to address the relevant issues such as the Payroll and Personnel Information System.
He also hinted that the National Association of Academic Technology(NAAT) and the Non-Academic Staff of Universities and other allied institutiona (NASU) – under the Joint Action Committee (JAC) had also gotthe support of their members to commence strike on the issues.
Ugwoke said the unions have delayed the strike due to the intervention of members of the House of Representatives who advised the Executive to raise a Supplementary Budget to cover the payment of Earned Allowance. Click To Read Full Details In Vanguard
