Even with the suspension of strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, students of Universities may not resume anytime soon. This is because the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities has agreed to embark on a three-day warning strike and protest. Both the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities made it known to the public that the strike will start from Tuesday to Thursday this week.
The both associations claimed that the Federal Government have refused to fulfill its promises. They also said that the Federal Government have failed to fulfill their owned part of the signed agreement. The both parties also claimed that other unresolved issues include the abandonment and poor funding of state universities by the Federal Government, the nonpayment of retirement benefits of outgone members and several other issues.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities has also said that it might resume its strike February, if the Federal Government refuse to fulfill all the promises they made to the union. With the situation of things now, it’s looking like students of tertiary institutions may stay a bit longer at home.
