SSANU, NASU commence strike

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and Non-Academic Staff Union have directed their members to commence a nationwide protest with effect from today, over alleged breach of the agreement by the Federal Government.

The unions were aggrieved by the exclusion of their members from the administration of the National University Pension Company solely operated by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

Other grievances included the preferential treatment extended to ASUU by the Federal Government as seen in the allocation of 80 per cent of funds released to them as earned allowances, while the non-academic staff unions got the remaining 20 percent.
