Following the latest actions in the Education sector of Nigeria, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has given a notice that a strike exercise is brewing in the universities.
The Union blamed the Federal Government for the intended strike and warned that if the Presidency does not do the right thing, the University workers will proceed as planned.
The union’s words were delivered by Emma Chigbata, the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike ÊkwÍ (AE-FUNAI) who maintained that the schooling system in universities are dying.
The Spokesman also highlighted poor funding of the universities on the part of the Government as one of the rots in the schooling system.
He however said if this strike actions persist, the students will eventually rise against the lecturers.
“The Federal Government has no respect for agreements. Many agreements it entered into with unions, none of them have been fulfilled,” Chigbata said.
one of the issues that the workers are facing is the slashing of theur salaries with the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS) which was introduced by the Federal government.
