The Nigeria Labour Congress has called on the Federal Government to resolve the ongoing strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities and National Association of Academic Technologists.

The workers union had asked the FG to set up a high-powered panel consisting of members with requisite mandates to resolve within 21 days the lingering issues militating against industrial harmony in Nigeria’s university system.

This was contained in a statement by the NLC’s President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba and General Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja, after a meeting with its affiliate unions in the education sector.

It, however, added that the congress would be convening a Special Meeting of the Central Working Committee of all the affiliate unions of the NLC to decide on the next line of action.

The statement read partly, “The Congress call on the Federal Government to immediately set up a High-Powered Panel constituted of members with requisite mandates to resolve within 21 days the foregoing issues militating against industrial harmony in Nigeria’s university system.

“And pursuant to the foregoing resolution, the Nigeria Labour Congress would be convening a Special Meeting of the Central Working Committee (CWC) of all the Affiliate Unions of the Congress to decide on the next line of action.”
