The Federal Government has pleaded with the Non-Teaching Staff of the Nigerian Universities to suspend their strike they embarked upon since December 10th 2017.
Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige, who made the appeal in a statement in Abuja, said that the current administration is taking steps to permanently resolve all outstanding matters that disrupt academic activities in the universities.
It was reported that there had been conciliatory meeting with the Non-Teaching Staff of Nigerian Universities called at the instance of the Minister.
The Non-Teaching Staff of Nigerian Universities operating under the acronym Joint Action Committee, JAC are made of the Non Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities, NASU, Senior Staff Academic of Nigerian Universities, SSANU National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT.
It would be recalled that JAC had accused the Federal Government of breaching the agreement entered with the unions in September 2017 that had led to the suspension of the strike the unions embarked on.
