As most of you know the non academic staff union has been on a strike for quite some time now and apparently that is setting halt to the registration processes of this year’s newly admitted candidates.
Furthermore to this returning students accommodation processes are also halted for a while this means clicking of bed space in the hostel are also not going on and registration is also not being carried at the moment here is the reason below.
Non academic staff unions in federal and state universities will, today, begin an indefinite strike, to protest the sharing formula of the N23 billion released by the Federal Government to settle earned allowances.
“The decision to resume the suspended strike was taken at a meeting of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) made up of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) in Abuja, last week.
SSANU, NASU and NAAT members in some universities, last Monday, disrupted academic and administrative activities over the sharing formula adopted by government, in payment of outstanding earned allowance.
In the formula adopted by the federal government, non academic staff were allocated 11 per cent of the N23 billion as against 89 per cent, for academic staff, in the universities.
In a joint letter signed by SSANU President, Samson Uwoke, that of NAAT, Sani Suleiman and NASU, Chris Ani, they urged members to resume the suspended indefinite strike as from 12 midnight of Sunday, December 3”.
In schools like ABU zaria non academic staff union are responsible for new students SCREENING,ACCOMMODATION allocation PROCESSES
Basically the non academic staff covers the hall admin ,library workers, security guards and so much more if they are not available admission process cannot be carried out.
So we will all have to wait till the strike is called off and the holiday season is already around so I’m guessing that that will be till next year.
Rumours have it that accommodation for returning students will not be open until january I believe that is true because there is really no time for clearance and all that with that said I would love to advise us all to retire to our homes and enjoy the festive seasons and wait till the non academic strike is called off or better still resumption date then I am settled that activities would begin in the school premises.
