Nigerian Students to Suffer More as University Workers Challenge FG, Make Fresh Declaration Over Strike

The leaders of workers of various university that are on strike have made a ‘no pay, no work declaration after the Nigerian government announced its ‘no work, no pay’ policy.

Daily Trust reports that the warning strike which the ASUU embarked on February 14, is now indefinite.

Speaking on behalf of the workers, the president of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), Ibeji Nwokoma, said laboratories, workshops, farms and other facilities in schools would remain shut until the government pays their salaries.

Nwokoma further called on members of the union to remain steadfast and not be deterred by the proclamation by the federal government.


He warned that the FG was adopting “divide and rule” tactics to dampen their morale.

His words:

“Today our union and ASUU have been singled out for the implementation of the policy of ‘No work, No pay.’

“Comrades, I, your President and indeed the National Leadership stand with you in this trying moment. Our strike action is legitimate and follows every due process.”

“Be rest assured that we shall come out better, stronger with every dime paid before or on resumption of work. United we stand for our Union makes us strong.”
