Strike: Nigerian university system needs urgent attention – SSANU

: system needs urgent attention – SSANU


The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, has described the Nigerian university system as one in need of urgent attention to correct its anomalies.

Patrick Esiehor, Chairman, SSANU, Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun, FUPRE, said this in a telephone interview with NAN in Warri on Tuesday.

Esiehor, while commenting on the warning strike the association embarked upon on Monday, said the strike would continue until the national body ordered its suspension.

A check by NAN on the university campus on Tuesday revealed that members of SSANU were not at their duty posts.

The branch chairman said that members of the association in FUPRE fully complied with the warning strike.

“As I speak with you now, I am at home, and likewise others. The strike is holding and total in FUPRE. The people you met on duty today on the campus belong to other unions in the university. For SSANU, we are on strike. We are not happy with the way the is treating the non-academic staff in the same university system.

“We followed due process before we embarked on our previous strike, but it is quite unfortunate that the government politicised things and decided not to pay salaries within that period. Now that Mr President has given an executive order that the salaries should be paid, a section of the staff was paid and others left behind,” he said.
