Strike: SSANU Insists On Release Of Withheld Salaries

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has said the Federal Government has yet to reach out to the union following the issuance of its fresh threat of strike.

The Joint Action Committee of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities had on 19th of June, 2024, given the Federal Government two weeks to pay the four months withheld salaries.

The JAC had also threatened to shut down universities and inter-university centres if the government failed to pay the withheld salaries at the expiration of the ultimatum.

The two non-teaching staff unions, in a letter to the Minister of Education, Prof Tahir Mamman, accused the government of neglect and insincerity.

In the letter titled, ‘Re- Four (4) months withheld salaries: Demand for immediate payment’, which was signed by the NASU General Secretary, Prince Peters Adeyemi and SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim, the two unions said they could no longer guarantee industrial harmony in the universities.

Speaking in Abuja on Friday, SSANU’s National President, Muhammed Ibrahim, noted that the unions had not received any response from the letter it sent to the minister on the status of the withheld salaries.
