A call placed to the office of the registrar confirmed that the non-academic staff in NDU have joined the strike today after a brief meeting where officials of NASU met to deliberate on the national strike.
Recall that in September 28, 2020, the unions had written to its branch chapters of the strike actions immediately after the lockdown and this decision to embark on a 14-day warning strike was in fulfillment of their threat to begin the action as soon as the federal government directs universities to resume academic activities.

The Unions warned that the 2-week warning strike may become full-blown if their demands were not met nor addressed by the federal government.
Reasons for the NASU Strike Action
NASU and SSANU have listed their grievances and they to include: non-payment of arrears of earned allowances being owed NASU and SSANU members despite various memoranda of understanding; inconsistencies of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) in the payment of salaries of their members; non-payment of arrears of national minimum wage to their members and non-payment of retirement benefits to outgone members.
Both NASU and SSANU have alleged that the FG lacked seriousness and delays in renegotiation of the 2009 FG/NASU and SSANU agreements; neglect and poor funding of state universities; and corruption in the university system; usurpation of the headship of non-teaching units by academic staff in clear violation of conditions of service and establishment procedures.
Unfortunately, while students are stil inquiring of when ASUU will call off their strike, NASU have decided to add their own pressure to the ongoing dilema.
Meanwhile, payment of all fees still remain intact as nduportals for all fees payments remains open for reception of students’ fees.
