« on: December 05, 2017, 11:50:20 AM »


Non-academic staff members of the University of Ilorin, ( UNILORIN ) have joined the nationwide strike called to protest unfair deals from the federal government by their national body.

The decision to join the strike, it was gathered was taken at a congress of the joint action committee, umbrella organ for three industrial unions in the system; the Non Academic Staff Union ( NASU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the NATS.

At the congress, Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Abdulkarem Age allegedly made spirited efforts to talk the workers out of the but he was said to have been rebuffed by the workers.

The workers, it was gathered said that they would not disobey the directive of the national body which had been duly communicated since last week.

“He pleaded with to sustain our record at the university and even asked that we retain some critical sectors but we told him at the congress that the strike will be total” ‘ a source at the congress told our reporter.”

When our reporter visited the university on Monday, the effect of the strike was yet to be felt as the workers were just returning from the congress.
