Strike looms in varsities as FG fails April deadline agreement with unions.

—SSANU leadership under pressure to declare a strike


INDICATION emerged on Sunday that the non-teaching staff in the universities are mounting pressure on their leadership to declare industrial dispute following the alleged Federal Government failure to keep to the April timeline for the implementation of the Memorandum of Action, MoA it entered with the unions.

The union members have lamented that after about 14 months the Consequential Adjustment for the new minimum wage came into effect, the government was yet to start its implementation.

Speaking to journalists at the weekend, the President of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, SSANU, Comrade Mohammed Haruna Ibrahim confirmed the pressure from his members to resume strike.

According to him, “We met with government some few months ago and we had an understanding after going on strike for three weeks. A lot of pressure was put on us; a lot of persuasions and we talked with the government and saw the reason to suspend the strike because the government tried to paint the picture of being sincere and we needed to give them an opportunity to do one or two things to ensure that our demands are met.

“As you are aware, our demands are not new demands. These are things that have been lingering for eleven years. We had an agreement with the government in 2009 and till today, a lot of such issues are still lagging behind; especially things that involve some payments of our allowances.


“We saw reasons to suspend because we felt the government was sincere and the timelines given by government – not us was that by end of April most of these issues will be sorted. We still believe a miracle can happen.

“Outside that a lot of our members are agitated, we are under a lot of pressure to go back to the trenches because even when we called our members to interact with them with pressed on them to give the government a chance.

“We are hoping that government will not disappoint us and paint us like liars before our members. Where the government doesn’t meet the timeline one cannot guarantee industrial peace because we have been taken for a ride for too long.

“Out of the seven issues we tabled before government three or four have been handled. For example the issue of the visitation panel: currently the panels are all over the universities. The issue of discrepancies in our salaries is also being handled by the IPPIS committee.

“But payment of the consequential adjustments for the new national minimum wage and the allowances that are encapsulated in our agreements contained in the earned allowance; these are still things that are lagging behind and there is no end in sight, to say the least.

"While the government has attempted to address some of the problems the ones that touch us directly- the ones that involve our pockets have not been addressed. Because of the insecurity inflation has skyrocketed. The prices of items have changed. Our members the little they get as salaries cannot even take them home. By the time you make a few purchases money is gone.

“We are pleading with the government to ensure that they don’t embarrass us as elders in our different unions, that all those agreements we have reached with them which they promise that they will see the light of day by the end of April come to see the light of the day but where it doesn’t, out hands are also tied as leaders.

“We never called off the strike, we only suspended it meaning that our notice is still with the government but by the expiration of this Memorandum of Action, all we need do is to call our people and inform them that government has failed us and they will tell us the next line of action to take.

“For us, in SSANU we are not struck mongers, we believe in engagements. Even when we went on strike it lasted for three weeks and because we believe that things can be done differently but where we are pushed to the wall we may have no reason other than to react.

“As I told you some of the issues we have with government – all the non-monetary aspect are being handled. Clearly, we have seen it but where it concerns giving out money to members who are paying their dues by working is where the government is reneging.

“For example, the payment of the consequential adjustment, the implementation of the EA in our salaries – these are the areas government is still lagging behind and the issue of non-remittance of pension deductions. Our members who have retired cannot access their money that has been collected on their behalf and lodged in the PFAs. This is a very pathetic situation.

“These are the areas government is still lagging behind and they have promised that we should give them up to the end of April by which time the consequential adjustments would have been paid, the EA would have been implemented alongside our salaries that are paid monthly. These are the areas we are still having issues with the government.”

It was reliably gathered that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Ngige has promised to wade into the matter to ensure that it didn’t lead to a strike.

These old men and women have sworn to keep our universities permanently shut down while their kids study in private universities.

From ASUU to SSANU to Non-academic Staff, they keep going on strike in turns. And all these strikes are for selfish interests. But they will turn around and tell parents that it's for the interests of their children.

Why is this FG so not straight forward.

This is becoming too much in Nigeria. The country is finished if care is not taken.

1. No light.
2. Education is taken for granted.
3. Food is so expensive.
4. Fuel is a problem regularly.
5. Getting a job is hell.
6. The name Nigeria is an embarrassment almost everywhere in the world.
7. There is no atom of security anymore in Nigeria. No one can go to sleep in peace.
8. You all can add your own. What a country.

The Nigerian system of government is no longer sustainable.

We need to restructure. No matter how much we lie to ourselves, we cannot bend the reality on ground to fit our imagination.

Let States start controlling their resources and let them pay the bills.

What will it cost the government to fulfill simple agreement.

It is until a law is passed that every political office holders must send their children to public universities in Nigeria, that is when strike will reduce in our higher institution of learning

It's not difficult to identify a government that is completely useless

Even the SSANU and ASUU are as useless as the government

LOL. I told one my friend it will come to a time when even over loyal fans of Buhari will start crying seriously.
I mean even the BMCs. Nigeria has been cancelled in the spiritual realm and just waiting a manifestation in the physical.

Many people do not really understand what is going ON. God is seriously angry with Buhari with a lot of innocent blood in his hands.
How can you kill, kill and kill just to get into power? Bible says that the blood of the innocent cries parmanently to God.

The ammount the country pays in oil subsidy makes it very difficult to have extra to pay for other things.
And Nigeria is currently owing a lot of debt that most countries are not willing to lend more.

The only option is for government to remove susidy and we will be buying fuel at N300 per litre. LOL.
This will surely be a lot of people elastic limit.

All these are happening becuase Buhari a jihadist failed to carry competent hands that will help his government along.
The money this man allorted to oil search in the north alone can revive his economy. Oyibo carry the money back to his country
with no tangible result. If only he used the money to build new refinery. SHAME
