These request came after a Point of Order by Senator Barau Jibrin (Kano North) on the proposed nationwide strike by the two unions.
The Senate saw it essential involve the SSANU and NASUU to tackle their heartbreaking feelings gently.
The senator, while raising his point of order, pointed out that
“It is saddening that SSANU and NASUU have given notice of commencing an industrial action over a number of issues”.
He further said, “if not addressed and resolved, the action of the unions would truncate the smooth running of universities in the country.”
He reflects his displeasure saying, “the issues raised by two unions were matters of concern with the relationship of the two unions with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the alleged refusal by the Federal Government to heed to their request since 2006.”
