According to the unions, the strike had become necessary due to the inconsistencies of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) in the payment of salaries of members of the two unions.

The statement read,” Following the recent directives from the National Universities Commission to Vice-Chancellors for immediate resumption/safe reopening of universities you are hereby directed to commence a 14-day warning strike effective from 5th to 19th, October 2020.”

Others include usurpation of the headship of non-teaching units by academic staff in violation of conditions of service and establishments; neglect and poor funding of state universities, corruption in the university system and none constitution of Visitation Panel for the universities in line with the laws.

NASU and SSANU said the 14-day warning strike is a prelude to a full-blown, total and indefinite industrial action if the demands of the unions are not properly addressed.
