It appears the strike action in public universities is set to continue after the meeting between the Federal Government and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU and the National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, ended without a resolution.


The Non teaching staff are in the third day of a seven day strike action to demand payment of four months withheld salaries approved by President Bola Tinubu.


The three unions noted that the Federal Government has been making promises that their concerns were receiving attention from the high quarters when nothing concrete was being done to pay them the way their sister Union, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU members were paid.


It was gathered that President of SSANU, Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim told the federal government delegation led by Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman flanked by his Minister of State, Dr. Yusuf Sununu, that they would not hesitate to suspend the strike if they were paid the four months withheld salaries.
