Following the ongoing ASUU strike, the Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-rufai has promised to sack striking lecturers in the Kaduna State University, if they don’t return to work.
According to reports, El-rufai made this known while speaking on a radio programme in Kaduna on Wednesday.
According to him, “The Acting Vice Chancellor has assured me that they will resume, but I have asked them to find out if they actually resumed work, because I initially instructed that their salary be stopped. But I was later told they didn’t join the strike, so I asked that it should be investigated and those that collected salary and joined the strike will be asked to refund the salary.”
The Academic Staff Union of Universities embarked on a nationwide strike on the 14th of July, and all the meetings of the Federal Government and the academic union to resolve the strike had been fruitless.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC embarked on a two-day nationwide protest in solidarity with the striking lecturers, issuing warning to the Federal Government that if no move is made, the Labour Congress would embark on a 3 days national warning strike.
