ASUU has decided to join the NLC strike in Kaduna
ASUU has decided to join the NLC strike in Kaduna to ensure that the government attends to the needs and difficulties faced by workers.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Kaduna State University Chapter, has instructed its members to join the current warning strike organized by public sector workers in Kaduna State.
The ASUU Chairperson, Dr Peter Adamu, gave the order and it was circulated to members of the union, on Monday, the 17th of May, 2021.
Adamu encouraged members to remember that ASUU is an affiliate of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and ASUU principal officers were part of the NLC National Executive Council that decided to embark on the strike action.
“Also, members that violate the strike action must note that the union will not be there for them when the wrath of the governor falls on them,” he said.
Furthermore, he added that ASUU must come together for a just cause because injury to one is injury to all, so everyone is affected whether they think so or not.
Remember that the NLC National President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba, had said the five-day strike action would take its full course unless the state government attended to the workers grievances.
It was also observed that all economic activities in Kaduna State came to a halt in Kaduna State on Monday the 17th of May, 2021, as the NLC protested the sacking of civil servants by Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led government. Banks, filling stations, shops, markets as well as other commercial activities remained closed in strict accordance with the strike as directed by the NLC.
The NLC and ASUU are determined to continue the strike until the government attends to their needs. According to many members, a lot of them are underpaid and their pay is also delayed at times. The major issue is with finances and job security that makes it difficult to sort out bills.
