ASUU Joins NLC Strike In Kaduna
The Nigeria Labour Congress has
gotten support in its ongoing 5-day warning strike after being joined by the
Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Kaduna State University Chapter.
ASUU directed its members to join
the ongoing warning strike by public sector workers in Kaduna State.
Dr Peter Adamu, ASUU Chairperson,
gave the order in a circular to members of the union, on Monday.
Adamu urged members to remember that
ASUU is an affiliate of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and ASUU principal
officers were part of the NLC National Executive Council that took the decision
on the strike action.
He added that ASUU must unite for a
just cause because injury to one is injury to all.
NLC National President, Comrade
Ayuba Wabba, had said the five-day strike action would run its full course
unless the state government attended to the workers grievances.
Recall that all economic activities
in Kaduna State came to a halt in Kaduna State on Monday, as the NLC protested
the sacking of civil servants by the Governor Nasir El-Rufai-led government.
Banks, filling stations, shops, markets as well as other commercial activities
remained closed in strict compliance as directed by the NLC.
