Nigeria_Students_Protest_661136244Information emerging from the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has revealed that by February 22 the union will determine its next line of action after mobilising its members to prepare for a possible industrial action, a unionist says.

National Vice President of the South-West Zone of the union, Mr Alfred Jimoh, spoke in Lagos on the possible strike in a telephone interview on Thursday. According to him, “The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the union will be meeting next week Friday and after then, we shall come out with the next line of action,” he said.

“We have been patient enough on these issues but government does not seem to take us seriously… We will therefore cripple the entire university system in the country if government does not accede to our demands,’’ Jimoh said.

SSANU had earlier mobilised its members to prepare for a possible industrial action as a means of pressing home their demand for the Federal Government’s full implementation of a 2009 agreement it entered into with SSANU. The body urged the government to jettison a report submitted by the NEEDS Assessment of Nigerian Public Universities Committee, saying, “is unfavourable’’.
