NUPENG Warns FG Over Prolonged ASUU, NASU, SSANU Strike

0 comment

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), is worried and concerned about the prolonged ASUU, NASU, and SSANU strike that has left activities in our tertiary institutions paralyzed for the past eight (8) months.

The Union joins other Unions to condemn the lackadaisical attitude of the Federal Government towards finding a lasting solution to the crisis.

we are deeply worried that the strike has left thousands of university students stranded and idle, making some of them susceptible to go into various social vices and crimes, thus truncating what otherwise should have been wonderful assets and blessings to our great nation and humanity.

This is definitely an unfortunate and sad commentary on the level of governance and sensitivity of the political leaders.

This also without a doubt shows the insensitivity of the current administration towards promoting and projecting good and quality education.

we are seriously concerned that instead of addressing the nagging issues in the educational sector, the unscrupulous politicians are busy campaigning and wasting resources over the 2023 general elections.

It is against this background that NUPENG demands together with other Trade Unions, that the Federal Government must immediately address and resolve all demands of ASUU, NASU, and SSANU without any further delay to avert national solidarity actions from our members across the Country.

The rank-and-file members of NUPENG align with the NLC’s position on protest against the unfortunate situation in the tertiary education sector and will not hesitate to join in the proposed nationwide strike on the matter.

A stitch in time saves nine. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

We are by a copy of this Press statement putting all our members on alert to be in solidarity actions on the directive of Nigeria Labour Congress at very short notice.

Our Solidarity remains constant, for the Union makes us stronger.


Comrade (Prince) Williams Akporeha

NUPENG President
