5-DAY WARNING STRIKE OF SSANU, NASU AND NAAT: ANOTHER SIGN THAT BUHARI GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED PUBLIC EDUCATION
We Support the Strike and Call on Government to avoid further disruption of academic calendar by meeting all demands
The Education Rights Campaign fully supports the decision of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NASU) to embark on a 5-day warning strike from January 16 to compel the federal government to fully implement the tenets of the 2009 FGN/ Non Teaching Staff Union agreement.

CALLS FOR DEMOCRATIC MANAGEMENT OF UNIVERSITIES
FOR A JOINT ACTION OF EDUCATION WORKERS AND STUDENTS
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is holding a week long warning strike that started on Wednesday, November 16, over the failure of the federal government to honour its aspects of the FGN-ASUU 2009 agreement. This agreement contains a commitment of government to upwardly fund education sector and pay outstanding wages of the academic staff. The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) fully supports the consistent struggle of ASUU for the implementation of this agreement. And we hold that the failure of Buhari government to uphold the terms of this agreement shows that there is no fundamental difference between Buhari and previous regimes that have reneged on this agreement and further eroded an already rotten education system.
