More Trouble For Nigerian Students As SSANU, NASU Declare Two-Week Strike

The Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Educational Institutions (NASU) have declared a two-week warning strike, beginning from Monday.

The development may compound the crisis at the Nigerian universities following the ongoing strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Daily Trust reports that ASUU on March 14, at the expiration of its four-week warning strike which it declared on Monday, February 14, extended the industrial action by two months.

The union led by Professor Emmanuel Osodeke said it made the decision to extend the strike so as to give the Federal Government and its agencies enough time to meet the lingering demands of the union.

Both SSANU and NASU have equally toed the same path after a two-week warning strike was declared on Friday.

This followed what the unions described as the failure of the Nigerian government to react to its letter earlier issued threatening to down tools.

The notice is contained in a memo addressed to the leadership of the unions’ branches nationwide and dated March 25, 2022.

The memo by JAC, which was signed by SSANU president, Mohammed Ibrahim, and NASU general secretary, Peters Adeyemi, is titled; “Commencement of Two-Week Warning Strike.”
