Trouble in Ogba Femi as NASU and SSANU Shutdown Gate, Commenced on a 7-Day Warning Strike!


In the early hours of March 18th, 2024, it was gathered that the school entrance has been blocked and everyone including motorist and students has been denied access into the campus. it was said that this action was prompted because of the 7-day strike the NASU and SSANU recently embarked on. The press release statement by the chairman of the Joint Action Committee, indicated that the strike was a very necessary tool as the government has withheld 4-month salaries of members in the university and interuniversity centres.
He also mentioned that the attention of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the chief of staff to the president and Prof Tahir Mamman, the honourable minister of education, was called to the injustice and unfair treatment of the members.
A letter was issued on the 13th of February to inform parties involved the need to resolve the issue positively before it escalates and leads to unnecessary upheaval.
Having waited patiently for the ultimatum to expire without positive response to their demand by the government, all members of the university throughout the country has been directed to begin a 7-day warning strike.

Below is the press release from NASU

In a similar vein, a press release was issued on 1st March, 2024 and the Federal Government was given 7-days ultimatum to do the needful in respect of the payment of the withheld 4 months’ salaries but nothing was done on same.
