According to Umar, the union has joined the industrial action in in compliance with the directive of the national secretariat of the union.

The statement identified reasons for the industrial action as non provision of funding for revitalisation of Federal Universities based on the Memorandum of Understanding between the union and the Federal Government as earlier agreed in November 2013.

 

He said the union also embarked on the strike because of the lingering issue of inadequate subvention by visitors of state universities and failure to enroll universities into the National Universities Pension Company.

Other issues are: shortfall in salaries leading to payment of a fraction of staff salaries and deliberate nonpayment of Earned Academic Allowance, among others.

Umar emphasised that comprehensive teaching and learning would not take place in the universities until the expiration of the period of the strike.
