Lingering Strike Will Be Counterproductive - SSANU President
Mohammed Ibrahim

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has warned that keeping their industrial action too long would be counterproductive.

SSANU President, Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim, who stated this on Friday, said he hopes the Federal Government would not disappoint the union based on the recently signed Memorandum of Action.

He also noted that the union’s decision to call off its three-week strike was reached after considering the plight of the Nigerian students.

“We would have remained adamant but because we are a reasonable and responsible set of people, we felt that keeping this strike too long will be counterproductive to the development of the country.”

“The onus of making sure we do not have to go back to this cycle is on the government itself. For us, we have listened to the voices of Nigerians, particularly our teeming young men who are the students and also the parents,” he said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. 

Ibrahim’s comments come 24 hours after the non-teaching staff unions of universities announced the suspension of its 3-week strike after signing a Memorandum of Action with the Federal Government team.
