NASU and SSANU extend their strike by two months.

This was announced on Wednesday in a statement signed by SSANU National President Mohammed Ibrahim and General Secretary Peter Adeyemi.

The statement partly read, ‘‘In view of the fact that government is still a long way from effectively resolving the issues in contention, it is only expedient that we allow the process to be fully concluded before directing the end of the strike. Consequently, you are hereby informed that the strike has been extended by two months, within which we are hoping that all the contentious issues would have been effectively laid to rest. The two-month extension is with effect from Friday, June 24, 2022.’’

According to reports, the NASU/SSANU strike began with a two-week warning strike that began at midnight on Sunday, March 27, 2022, and was followed by a two-week extension that began on Sunday, April 10, 2022, and is still ongoing.
