Meanwhile, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP), the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), and the National Union of Teachers (NUT) have directed their members to comply with the strike directive.

“The NLC has declared an indefinite strike action beginning from Monday, 3rd June 2024, as a result of the failure of Government to conclude the renegotiation of minimum wage for Nigerian workers and reversal of hike in electricity tariff.

“Our branches are hereby enjoined to join in the strike action as an affiliate member of Congress. Consequently, Branch Chairpersons are to mobilise all members to participate in the strike action,” ASUU President Emmanuel Osodeke wrote in a notice to its branch chairpersons and zonal coordinators.

SSANU, in a notice signed by its Senior Assistant General Secretary, Kingsley Okayi, also asked members to ensure the downing of tools.

“I am directed by the National President to request that you comply with the information by directing all SSANU members to liaise with their NLC State Chapter to ensure a comprehensive closure of the workplace with effect from Monday, 3rd June 2024, until further notice,” Mr Okayi wrote.

“You are also to liaise with your National Vice President and report the progress of the industrial action to the National Secretariat regularly.”

The NUT notice of strike was written by the NUT Secretary General, Mike Ene, to state chairpersons, school principals and teachers.

“You are requested to sensitise and mobilise our members to fully join the strike action and ensure that on no condition should any school be allowed to open from Monday 3rd June 2024 till further notice,” Mr Ene wrote.

He said the National Leadership would not entertain any excuse for failure from any state, adding strict compliance is required because NUT particularly has a stake in the struggle.

NAAT General Secretary Abubakar Yusuf wrote: “All Branch Chairmen and Secretaries are to liaise with their state LC councils for coordination and to ensure full participation of our members.

“Zonal coordinators are hereby directed to monitor the active participation of all Branches in their zones and report to the National through the General Secretary.
