The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, has declared a strike action, joining the non-academic academic staff of the school protest against Oyo State government’s handling of workers’ welfare.
In a statement, signed by the Secretary of SSANIP, Ajibola Oyetunde, on Friday, all senior workers have been notified not to resume to their offices on Monday, August 20.
“The above directives have no exemption to any office/offices,” read the statement. “There would be the monitoring unit on campus to keep watch on any erring member.”
The Non-academic workers’ unions of the institutions had earlier threatened to further their agitations by disrupting academic activities and shutting down the institution.
The Chairman of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP), Gbenga Akinola, in a conversation with CAMPUS REPORTER, said they made the decision after the ultimatum given last week expired.
“We’ve been negotiating for a long time but they are dilly-dallying. We believe that education is part of the social responsibilities of the government,” he said.
