ASUU Strike update today 2022: Nigeria Civil Service Union Backs NLC Planned Strike
The Nigeria Civil Service Union has pitched its tent with the decision of the Central Working Committee of the Nigeria Labour Congress to embark on strike in solidarity with university lecturers and other unions in the Nigeria tertiary institutions whose demands have not been met by government.
NLC had during the pre May Day rally held in Abuja last Friday threatened to embark on a three-day nationwide warning strike if the Federal Government continues to ignore the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
NLC also said it would hold a national protest within the 21-day ultimatum to the Nigerian government.
In a press release issued and signed by the General Secretary of the Union Comrade Bomoi Mohammed ibraheem titled “we cannot afford to sit on the fence” the foremost Trade Union in Nigeria worried over the deliberate refusal of government to yield to the demand of the workers thus promoting incessant strike which had continued to destroy the education system.

According to the statement, it is disheartening and warrisome that the political class is deliberately developing “a culture of social Apartheid wherefore the children of the poor are deliberately and strategically being denied tertiary education in order to make them perpetually subservient to the children of the rich.”
The Union admonished all stakeholders in the Nigeria project not to sit on the fence and ruin the future of Nigerian youths.
The Nigeria Civil Service Union founded in 1912 vowed “to adopt and pursue to its logical conclusion all action plans set out by all organs of Nigeria Labour Congress in the support of ASUU course of actions and other unions in tertiary institutions.
