SSANU, NASU Declare Seven-Day Warning Strike

Jelili Gbadamosi

SSANU and NASU have declared a seven-day warning strike over their salaries, which were withheld during the 2022 nationwide strike. 

The decision was reached at a joint action committee meeting held in Akure, the capital of Ondo State, over the weekend.

 SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, explained on Monday that the unions resorted to the warning strike after numerous protest letters and communications with the Federal Government yielded no results.

Ibrahim stated, “If nothing is done by the Federal Government to positively address this situation and respond to our previous letters to them, the members of the two unions may be forced to meet soon to take all lawful and stringent decisions on the matter.”

SSANU and NASU accused the federal government of failing to pay the withheld salaries, despite President Bola Tinubu’s order to pay members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities who also participated in the 2022 strike.

 The unions had given the Federal Government a one-week ultimatum to settle the withheld salaries about two weeks ago.
