    The letter was signed by the national leaders of the three sister unions; Comrade Samson Ugwoke for The  Senior S…

     The management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife, has acted against the decision of the Non-academic staff unions by paying the controversial Earned Allowance EA to all the unions, including the Teaching, which is  Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) and the Non-teaching Staff unions; Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).

    Earlier today, in a release from the Office of the Public Relations Officer of the school, Olanrewaju Abiodun, he stated that the payment has begun earlier today.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world- Nelson Mandela

     How can we breakthrough as a country if the tool that can be used is in comatose state? This is a question that pops out of an average Nigerian student every time the abysmal state of the Education sector in Nigeria is the focal point of any intellectual discourse.

    Going by the tenets and recommendations of the United Nations, which are expedient for any country that desires growth, 26% of a country's annual budget should be expended on Education. This is not because of it's every day effects on all sectors but because it yields an everlasting dividends.

     It no longer rings any bell, knowing fully well that the highest Nigeria has achieved ever is 10.43% in 2006. Even the minute allocations are not judiciously spent. Little wonder why the Nigerian Universities Commission(NUC) budgeted 85 million naira for Vehicles while 8 million naira is for Research…

  In a crucial meeting of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) made up of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) held in Abuja, it was agreed upon that universities will begin an indefinite strike on Monday, December 4, 2017


   This is to protest against the sharing formula of the N23billion released by the Federal Government to settle their Earned allowances as Universities like Obafemi Awolowo University and University of Ibadan have spontaneously reacted to.

   The decision was as a result of the elapsed deadline of Seven days given to the Federal Government to explain what brought about the skewed ratio. In the formula adopted by the federal government, the non academic staffs were allocated 11 per cent of the N23billion as against 89 per cent for academic staff in the universities.
