SSANU, NASU end warning strike, announce resumption date

Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union have called off their seven-day warning strike.

The two unions went on strike to press their demands for the release of their withheld four-month salaries.

They said that it was not justifiable for the Federal Government to fund the Academic Staff Union of Universities while leaving them out.

The President of SSANU, Mohammed Ibrahim, announced the conclusion of the strike on Sunday and instructed members of both unions to resume work on Monday.

Ibrahim said in a circular to the members of NASU and SSANU on Sunday: “Consequently, you are hereby informed that the seven-day warning strike shall end at midnight of Sunday, 24th March 2024 and normal work will resume on Monday, 25th March 2024.”

He promised that the unions will continue “meaningful engagement with the relevant Government Agencies in both Executive and Legislative Arms” and notify members of the next line of action(s) to be taken.
