A memo was sent to vice chancellors around the country to put a stop to adding a few university staff on payroll, claiming that they can no longerbear the cost of running staff schools.
This directive has affected 2000 staff, but TheNation reports has revealed that they might be recalled. In response to the memo, the members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities went on an indefinite strike saying that the directive was a contravention of the 2009 agreement between the government and the union. The government is reportedly considering calling back the staff with the aim of ending the strike.
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu was said to have invited the union leaders to a meeting on Sunday in Abuja to deliberate on how to end the strike.
