Taraba: Why we embarked on indefinite strike – SSANU


- Advertisment -spot_img

The leadership of the Taraba State chapter of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian University (SSANU) has finally broken silence on why they have collectively resolved to embark on an indefinite strike.

In an interview with VELOXNEWS in Jalingo, the state capital, the state chairman of the association, Linus William, said the strike has become necessary following the “ill attitudes” of the leadership of the state towards the members of the association.

Citing non-payment of promotion arrears, pensions, among the numerous reasons the association unanimously agreed to make learning activities cumbersome for the institution, the members, as stated by him, have signified interest not to suspend the strike pending when their demands were addressed.

The strike, which has no doubt begun to negatively affect the academic activities of the institution, was noticed to have started barely a few days after the National University Commission (NUC) ranked the university among the twenty best universities in the country.

William told VELOXNEWS that he could not fathom why the state government has continued to turn down the demands of the association while those of the teaching staff were being attended to.

He called on well-meaning individuals to press on the state government to insert the right peg in the right hole, saying no amount of threats, intimidation and harassment would ever compel them to suspend the strike action.
