FG Apprehend Ssanu, Nasu Strike. by MediMedi(m): 9:50pm On Feb 05
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has said
that any move by the unions in the University system to go ahead
with its planned strike will contravene ILO Statute on Social
Dialogue and Principles at work.
Dr Ngige, who said this on Friday while addressing State House
reporters after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at
the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on many urgent labour issues, said
such strike would be wrong while discussions were still ongoing.
The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated
Institutions (NASU) as well as the Senior Staff Association of
Nigeria Universities (SSANU), had given notice of strike expected to
start midnight of February 5.
The two unions threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if the
government failed to address about seven points demand they
made.
The minister, however, asked NASU and SSANU to give the
government three months so that it will forward a supplementary
budget to the National Assembly to cover arrears of the minimum
wage that had not been paid to them
He said that the government had “apprehended” the strike by
engaging on social dialogue with the unions.
He said: “I was around to see Mr President on so many urgent
labour issues. We will not claim ignorant of the fact that three
unions in the University system, the Non-Academic Staff Union of
Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU, the Senior Staff
Association of Nigeria Universities, SSANU and the National
Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT had given us notice
of strike.
“The first two unions SSANU and NASU did that under the
umbrella of Joint Action Committee, JAC, and as government, we
have moved to apprehend the strike because we just came out
from a strike that lasted for nine months that was executed by the
Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
“So, in consonance with the labour laws, we have apprehended
both strikes.

You forgot NASU,NAAT&SSANU when you was paying others arrears of minimum wage , you also forgot to include it the budget and now you want them to give you 3 months for you to include it in supplementary budget.
You want us to clap for you ?
Nothing last forever.

The Unions should give you 3 months to address just 1 of their issues out of about 7.
Ngige is one of the most heartless beings in this buhari's government.
Anywhere, strike had already begun.
