Withheld salaries: SSANU, NASU direct members to begin nationwide strike tomorrow March 18

The leadership of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) have directed their members across university and inter-university centre campuses nationwide to withdraw services beginning from Monday, 18 March.

 

Withheld salaries: SSANU, NASU direct members to begin nationwide strike tomorrow March 18

The associations embarked on a seven-day warning strike last week over the unpaid withheld salaries of their members.

In a fresh memo issued by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of both SSANU and NASU, and signed by the National President of SSANU, Mohammed Ibrahim, and the General Secretary of NASU, Peters Adeyemi, the associations urged the branch leaders to embark on the nationwide strike as from tomorrow and ensure total compliance to the directive.

 

JAC blamed the Nigerian government for allowing the matter to degenerate, querying the justification for the payment of the withheld salaries of the members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) but failing to pay those of its members.

 

The memo reads in part;

 

“Please note that the 7-day warning strike should be comprehensive and total as no concession should be given in any guise. Your strict compliance and adherence to this directive is mandatory for all NASU and SSANU branches in the Universities and Inter-University Centres.”
