Activities in the nation’s universities would soon be paralyzed as the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) threatened to commence a nationwide strike should the Federal Government carry out its plans to stop funding of university staff schools across the country.
Vice-President, Western Zone of SSANU, Comrade Alfred Jimoh drop the hints during a peaceful protest against a circular purportedly issued by the Federal Ministry of Education, directing Federal Public Establishments with staff schools not to fund their personnel budget from the treasury, at the Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma-Edo State.
The unionists, carrying placard with various inscriptions marched through the university, chanting songs that captured their grievances.
Comrade Alfred Jimoh, insisted that government must abide by the 2009 FGN/SSANU Agreements, which according to him, states among other things that the recurrent and capital expenditure of the staff schools is the responsibility of government.
