The Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational Associated Institutions have stated that their meeting with the Federal Government on Wednesday ended in a deadlock.

On Monday, SSANU and NASU launched a seven-day warning strike to seek their four-month pay, which have been withheld since 2021, when they went on strike.

Speaking with our correspondent in an interview, Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, National President, JAC of SSANU, NASU, said that the unions met with the two Ministers of Education, the Permanent Secretary, and other directors, but the meeting had no conclusive results.

He said, “Strike continues. We met with the two Ministers of Education and the permanent secretary, and they told us that our complaints were receiving attention at the highest quarters of government.

Meanwhile, the National Association of Academic Technologists also launched a nationwide strike on Wednesday. The union at the University of Lagos held a peaceful demonstration in front of the school's gate.

Mr Douglas Ojobo, Chairman of UNILAG NAATS, said, "Our national executives issued a series of letters, we consulted, and they ignored it; they did not reply to our national leadership. We discussed and decided that NAATS should hold a three-day nationwide demonstration, beginning today and ending Friday.

"If nothing is done by the end of Friday, it will be reviewed, and we will come up with another approach to make sure that the government pays us our money. We deserve our salary, and we need our salaries''.
