Withheld salaries: SSANU, NASU members stage nationwide protests

Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), on Tuesday, July 9, staged nationwide protests within campuses of public universities to demand the immediate release of their withheld salaries.

NASU national president, Makolo Hassan, had on Monday said there was no going back on Tuesday’s demonstrations as both unions claimed that the federal government had failed to address their demands following their warning strike some months back.

At the Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Kaduna state, placard-carrying non-academic staff members had several inscriptions on their placards as they marched around the university campus, calling on the federal government to release their withheld salaries and implement their other outstanding demands.

At the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), in Imo state, displeased workers marched around the university community to press home their demands.

Tuesday’s protests followed the expiration of a two-week ultimatum handed by NASU and SSANU to the Federal Government in June.
