Despite the decision of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off its five weeks old strike; academic activities will continue to be disrupted at the universities across the country as the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and National Association of Academic Technologists have vowed to enforce their ongoing strike.
NASU declared on Tuesday that they are determined to continue with the struggle for as long as government remains unconcerned. The three non-academic unions commenced an indefinite industrial action on Monday, the eleventh of September, 2017.
Speaking in Abuja at the National Executive Council meeting of NASU, the union President, Comrade Chris Any, called on the Federal Government to immediately respond positively to all their demands with a view to ensuring that the strike ends without any further delay.
He also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to accord the education sector its needed priority by declaring emergency in the sector.
Also speaking, the President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)’ Comrade Ayuba Wabba, called on the government to look at those issues raised by the unions in order to revitalise the education system.
