Are you aware, that the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) are threatening to shut down Nigeria Universities?
It seems this week, might rock the Nigeria educational system to a standstill, because this threat might come to pass, just like Academic Staff Union of Universities threatens to shut down MOUAU, SSANU disclosed this last weekend, that they might shut down Nigerian Universities if their need is not met.
The new government, under general Muhammadu Buhari, has threaten to stop all funding of Universities staffs across the country, and it seems the only body capable of stopping and combating this decision is SSANU, and they’re doing so.
According to information we received, academic activities in the nation’s universities would soon come to a halt as the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has already threatened to begin a nationwide strike immediately!, if the Federal Government carry out its plans to stop funding of university staff schools across the country.
According to the Vice-President of the Western Zone of SSANU, Comrade Alfred Jimoh, who disclosed this information during a peaceful protest against a circular purportedly issued by the Federal Ministry of Education, directing Federal Public Establishments with staff schools not to fund their personnel budget from the treasury, at the Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma-Edo State.
The unionists, who are against this circular, carried placard with various inscriptions and marched through the university, chanting songs that captured their grievances.
The vice president, Comrade Alfred Jimoh, insisted that Nigeria federal government must abide by the 2009 FGN/SSANU Agreements, which completely and clearly states among other things, that the recurrent and capital expenditure of the staff schools is the responsibility of federal government.
