The Student Union Government (SUG),  Kogi State University, has teamed up with the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), to protest against three months of industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Kogi State University chapter.

The protest is currently taking place at Ganaja Junction, Lokoja, the state’s capital.

The university’s SUG President Omepa Philip Shaibu after a meeting with the NANS’ President Tijani Usman announced that the protest will take place today (July 14th).

The lecturers embarked on strike to press home demands for their 5 months salary arrears. The state government reportedly paid 4 months of the salary arrears.

The Union, however, insisted on getting their demands in full as issues bothering on the 1 month outstanding salary and tax rebate lingered.

    Naija just tire me!
    I just can’t understand the kind of leaders we have, they’d rather that a strike lasts forever than pay up what they owe d Lecturers. It’s only in Naija! Mtcheew eek!

    That’s a wonderful performance, ALUTA continue, the state government & ASUU are not in a good agreement in other to call off the strike, they should better do something because education is the hope of we the youth please.
