The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) will Monday begin a 14-day warning strike.

The unions announced this in a letter, dated September 28, 2020, and jointly signed by NASU General Secretary Peters Adeyemi and SSANU President Samson Ugwoke and addressed to branch chairmen of both unions.

The letter reads: “Kindly recall earlier information on the above subject matter wherein it was conveyed that the Joint Action Committee of NASU and SSANU would embark on a 14-day industrial action immediately universities resume, following the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Following the recent directives from the National Universities Commission (NUC) to Vice Chancellors for the immediate resumption/safe reopening of universities, you are hereby directed to begin a 14-day warning strike effective from October 5 to 19, 2020.”

The two unions said the warning strike could snowball into full-blown action, if their demands are not addressed by the Federal Government.


  1. Strike is a serious problem among educational in Nigeria universities, among academic and non-academic staff, they have chosen to embark on strike action, rather than engage more on academic for the development of their students and for development of their students and for the growth of the country.
