The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Kaduna State University Chapter, has expressed its readiness to mobilize its members to join the ongoing warning strike by public sector workers in Kaduna State.
Dr. Peter Adamu, the ASUU Chairman, disclosed this in a circular to members of the union, on Monday, May 17, 2021.
Adamu in the circular asked ASUU members to remember that the union is an affiliated to Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and that ASUU principal officers were part of the NLC National Executive Council that took the decision on the strike action.
“Also, members that violate the strike action must note that the union will not be there for them when the wrath of the governor falls on them”, he said.
The ASUU Chapter Chairman reiterated that ASUU must unite for a just cause because injury to one is injury to all.
Recall that the 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.
Many commercial and economic activities were brought to a halt in Kaduna state on Monday, May 17, 2021, due to the NLC protest resulting from the sacking of civil servants in the state.
