1 Min Read

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, alongside the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU, on Tuesday, staged nationwide protests in the various campuses of public universities demanding the immediate release of their withheld salaries.

Recall that NASU national president, Makolo Hassan, had on Monday said there was no going back on Tuesday’s demonstrations as both unions stated that the Federal Government had failed to address their demands following their warning strike some months back.

At the Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Kaduna State, members of the non-academic staff carrying placards marched around the university campus, calling on the Federal Government to release their withheld salaries and implement other outstanding demands.

At the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, FUTO, in Imo State, displeased workers marched around the university community to press home their demands.

The protests followed the expiration of a two-week ultimatum handed by NASU and SSANU to the Federal Government in June.
