NLC Gives FG 21- day to Resolve ASUU, SSANU Strikes

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the Federal Government to resolve the ongoing strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).

The Congress urged the government to immediately set up a high-powered panel constituted of members with requisite mandates to resolve within 21 days the foregoing issues militating against industrial harmony in Nigeria’s university system.

The NLC said this in a statement by its President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba and General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja, after a meeting with its affiliate unions in the education sector.

The Congress said it would be convening a Special Meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) of all the affiliate unions of the NLC to decide on the next line of action.

The statement reads in part: “The Congress call on the Federal Government to immediately set up a High-Powered Panel constituted of members with requisite mandates to resolve within 21 days the foregoing issues militating against industrial harmony in Nigeria’s university system.

“And pursuant to the foregoing resolution, the Nigeria Labour Congress would be convening a Special Meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) of all the Affiliate Unions of the Congress to decide on the next line of action.”
