Nasarawa State Tertiary Institutions To Go On Strike

The Academic and non Academic Staff of all the Tertiary Institutions in Nasarawa State has decided to go on strike after the State Government failed to meet their demands.
Members of the unions in the Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia; College of Education, Akwanga, and the College of Agriculture, Lafia, are threatening to embark on strike over issues bordering on staff welfare and administration.

The workers had embarked on a strike that lasted for six months in 2013, but was suspended for five weeks following the intervention of the institutions’ governing councils.
One of the officials who spoke to our news man said the union had met and decided to embark on the strike on Tuesday if their pay slips did not reflect their promotion arrears, which was part of their demands.

“It is obvious that the government does not care about the education sector, especially in these three institutions.
“We were in this struggle with the state university, but the government singled it out to address its challenges and remained adamant on our plight.

“I assure you if our expectations are not met by Monday, we are definitely going on strike,’’ he added.
