      The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have initiated a 7-day national strike to protest against what they perceive as unfair treatment and disparity in the payment of withheld salaries by the Nigerian Federal Government. This strike has led to the cessation of services by workers in various departments such as registry, bursary, works and maintenance, security, and student affairs across public universities in Nigeria.

      Mohammed Ibrahim, the President of SSANU, announced the strike on Channels television, expressing frustration over the lack of communication from government representatives. He specifically noted the absence of outreach from Labour Minister Nkiruka Onyejeocha, contrasting it with the more responsive approach of former Labour Minister Chris Ngige.

      The unions have warned that if their demands are not addressed by the end of the 7-day period, they will consider further actions. This situation underscores the ongoing tensions between the unions and the government over issues related to employment conditions and salary payments in Nigerian public universities.
