ASUU, NASU strike: NUPENG threatens to go on protest with NLC

Oil workers under the auspices of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), have said that they align themselves with the NLC’s position on protest against unfortunate situation in the Nigerian tertiary education sector and will not hesitate to join in the proposed nationwide strike on the matter.

In a statement signed by the national President and General Secretary of the union, the workers said they are worried and concerned about the prolonged ASUU, NASU, ssANU strike that has left activities in our tertiary institutions paralyzed for the past eight 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 ls definitely an unfortunate and a sad commentary on the level of governance and sensitivity of the political leaders. This also without 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 ed ucationa I sector, the unscrupulous politicians are busy campaigning and wasting resources over 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”
