UI SSANU NASU Joins Nationwide Strike

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have begun a nationwide strike over what they described as unfair treatment and disparity in the payment of withheld salaries by the Federal Government.

The strike is in fulfilment of the earlier threat and ultimatum issued to the Nigerian government by the unions over the unpaid withheld salaries of their members.

In Ibadan, the Oyo State Capital, the strike took a different turn today, as there were movement of people and vehicles within the premises of the University of Ibadan. However, the SSANU Chairman, UI Branch, Comrade Abiodun Omisore, noted that the associations decided to change strategy by not blocking the roads or shutting the main entrance of the school but there are no activities being carried out at the offices.

Also speaking with Newsmen, the NASU Chairman, UI chapter, Comrade Michael Ogunlade said the warning strike is as a result government's failure to meet the demand of the associations, adding that no work will be done in the University for the next seven days.

Recall that President Bola Tinubu had recently directed that university workers that were on prolonged strike in 2022 and their salaries stopped by the Muhammadu Buhari administration after the invocation of “no work, no pay” policy, should be paid four months of the withheld salaries.
