Before the walkout was stopped last Saturday, the disgruntled members said their leaders had not properly brought them along.
The JAC of SSANU/NASU leadership requested all of its members nationally to continue the strike today in a statement on Saturday, however, the UNILAG branch members went to the streets to protest the suspension of the strike.

Members of SSANU/NASU UNILAG held numerous signs on Wednesday and as of the time of publication that said, “We are weary of General Secretary Adeyemi Peters and Mohammed Ibrahim of SSANU, they must go!” and “We are not civil employees.”
On March 27, 2022, the JAC of NASU and SSANU began a National Industrial Action that was terminated on August 20, 2022.
Additionally, it requested that its members return to work on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. However, the members told our reporter that they felt belittled and that they had not been properly informed.
All of the JAC of SSANU and NASU members who talked with our reporter said they were not informed, adding that a congress was meant to take place prior to the strike’s suspension.
Oriwaye Adefolalu, a former chairman of SSNAU and UNILAG, said that JAC of SSANU and NASU erred by ending the strike they initiated to pressure the federal government to carry out its constitutional obligations without bringing along its members at their respective branches.
He said, “I am not the kind of person that can deceive you, records are there, the incumbent leadership of SSANU is not truthful. Initially, I thought they didn’t know what they were doing but they do.
“All they are after is their personal gain. The situation is getting worse every moment. I am 100% convinced that the suspension of the strike was stage-managed by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, to save his job. What Adamu did was brain washing and greasing of their hands.”
