Just recently the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) have threatened to embark on a three-day protest on Jan. 12, 2021.
Universities in the country have been shut down for 9 months due to ASUU strike, and this new strike threatens the proposed January 18th resumption.
The unions in a circular jointly issued on Sunday in Abuja under the aegis of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) said that the planned strike was to protest the non-implementation of an agreement reached with the Federal Government.
According to the statement, the issues for which the Memorandum of Agreement were entered into include inconsistencies in IPPIS payments, non-payment of Earned Allowances, non-payment of arrears in minimum wage.
Other issues are: neglect and poor funding of state universities and non-constitution of visitation panels for universities.
