The Nigerian universities are threatened with another strike as the SSANU declares the national protest within three days

Another strike action seems imminent when the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) said it will launch a nationwide three-day protest from December 17 to 19 to voice its demands.

Mr Abdussobur Salaam, national public relations officer, said this on Monday, 10 December, in Abuja.

It should be noted that the SSANU, the Association of Non-Academic Staff (NASU) and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) started a nationwide strike on 4 December 2017 and suspended it in March.

Strike: FG, ASUU have reached partial agreement

Minister of Labor and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, said the federal government will raise eight billion naira for the payment of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of NASU within five weeks.

According to Salaam, the protest is that the agreement reached with the government will not be implemented.

"The protest was a decision made at the 35th session of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the SSANU trade union, which took place on December 5 and 6 at Enugu State University.

"In light of this, the National Executive Council of the union has decided that the branches should organize a three-day national protest across the country.

"The nationwide protest should start between Monday, December 17 and Wednesday, December 19," Salaam said.

Meanwhile, the Academic Staff Association of Universities (ASUU) has been on a nationwide strike since 4 November.
