There seems to be more looming crises across Nigerian University Campuses as three major non-academic staff unions will decide tomorrow whether to join the strike by University lecturers.
The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, according to reports at our disposal, will meet with the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities, NASU, and the Non-Academic Technicians, NAT, in Abuja to decide on whether to join the ongoing industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
Abdulsubur Salaam, the National Public Relations Officer of SSANU, said during an interview weekend, that the associations have been “pushed to the wall” by the federal government.
ASUU had embarked on a nationwide strike last Monday over demands for improved funding of universities and welfare of lecturers.
A meeting between the union and the federal government last Thursday, ended in deadlock.
But an optimistic Adamu Adamu, the Education Minister, said the strike could be called off within one week.
