No cause for alarm: ASUU chair dispels rumour that the Union has joined the statewide NLC strike

Following the declaration of a statewide industrial action by the Nasarawa state chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, for the unpaid salaries of civil servants in the state, rumours have been rife that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Nasarawa State University has joined the action.

This is coming on the heels of the suspended strike by ASUU last week, after a breakthrough in the lingering crisis that has stagnated activities in the University.

However, speaking to NSUK Guide/ CampusWatch a while ago, the chapter chairman of ASUU, Dr. Theophilous Lagi said the Union will not be joining the ongoing NLC strike in the state

According to him, "we are aware of the strike but there is no cause for alarm".
He restated that the Union has suspended the strike action and has no intention of joining the action by the organised labour in the state or going back to the suspended strike"for now", he added.
