The Joint Action Committee, JAC, of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU; Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities, NASU; and the National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, have resolved to embark on an indefinite strike from September 11.
The unions made the announcement in a press conference, in Abuja, on Wednesday afternoon.
The chairman of JAC who is also the President of SSANU, Samson Ugwoke, said the nationwide strike would be total and comprehensive.
“During the strike, there shall be no provision of services, no matter how skeletal. Concessions shall not be granted while all our members are to stay at home till further notice, unless as directed by JAC through their respective presidents,” he said.
This is coming at a time when the Federal Government is still trying to resolve the earlier started Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, that had crippled academic activities in Nigerian Universities.
