Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), the University of Ibadan chapter have blocked all the entrance gates to the University over the failure on the part of the Federal Government to honour their demands.
It will be recalled that SSANU and NASU had declared an indefinite strike should the Federal Government fail to respect the agreement both parties had reached. The strike action was commenced on Friday, February 5, 2021.
The Joint Action Committee of the workers had in a press statement, last month, declared its intention to commence the strike.
The blockade of the gates at University of Ibadan has led to a traffic jam along the Ojoo-Sango road; as all the gates leading to the university were still under lock and keys on Tuesday, February 9, without any sign there will be an immediate change of situation.
Mr. Tunji Oladejo, the Director of Communications, the University of Ibadan, while speaking to the press confirmed that the two unions were on strike.
Oladejo, furthermore stated that the unions commenced nationwide strike on Friday, February 5.
