Federal Government Says Demands of Striking Varsity Staff Have Been Fully Met

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, says the Federal Government has fulfilled its part of an agreement reached with the striking non-academic staff of federal universities since Sept. 20.

The university workers began the strike on Monday under the aegis of Joint Action Committee (JAC) made up of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).

They are protesting the sharing formula of the N23 billion released by the Federal Government for the settlement of earned allowances. In the sharing formula, non-academic staff were allocated 11 per cent of the N23 billion as against 89 per cent for academic staff in the universities.

Ngige said it was important for Nigerians to be informed that the federal government had fully fulfiled its part of the agreement. He stated that the government could not be blamed for what the unions term “skewed disbursement formula” for the money.

He warned them to stop misguiding their members and avoid pushing the government to a point where it would invoke ‘No Work No Pay’ in line with labour laws.



  1. I'll wait to hear from the other party cos hardly any government in Naija history has misrepresented facts like the Buhari led APC government.

  2. If the federal government has paid up, then what is the problem?sharing formula???

  3. Sharing formula of 89:11 is too poor.
    But I believe they have their books so they should look into it to know what the law says.

  4. who else thinks this is a lie? i do

    *hangs leg on the wall*

  5. Lie lie government. We sabi as e dey be.
