The Senior Staff Association Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU) announced that they will commence strike action on the 5th of February 2021, in a bid to get the FG to comply with their demands.
This was disclosed in a statement signed jointly by Mr Peters Adeyemi, and NASU General Secretary, Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, SSANU President, on Thursday, in Abuja.
Adeyemi added that after the meeting with the FG this week, both unions have called for general meetings with all branches and would go on strike on the 5th of February.
“This is to give reports on the outcome of the conciliation meeting and pass resolutions on the way forward. The resolutions of the branches must reach the respective National Secretariats on or before Tuesday, Feb. 9.”
“In the meantime, the nationwide strike takes effect from 12 midnight, 5 Feb., 2021, pending any contrary resolution by the branches,” Adeyemi said.
