Because to the current strike, Kaduna State University’s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members have been threatened with dismissal and job vacancies by Nasir el-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State.
On a radio program, Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai made similar declarations, adding that ASUU’s issues are with the federal government of Nigeria rather than the state administration.
The Acting Vice Chancellor has told me that they will resume work after I previously commanded that their salary be withheld until they return to it.
I requested an investigation into the present strike because the lecturers who took their pay and participated in the strike had to reimburse us. In Nigeria, the legislation is “no work, no pay.” Therefore, none of the strikers will receive a salary.
Why would our employees, who don’t have any issues with us, join the strike if ASUU has issues with the Federal Government? questioned Nasir el-Rufai.
“I swear to God, if this strike continues, I’ll wake up one morning and fire them all. We will all get fired. Their posts will be listed in the newspaper as vacant.
Nasir el-Rufai stated, “I am simply awaiting the Commissioner for Education’s report, and I vow to God, I will fire all of the lecturers who participated in the strike if they refuse to return to work.” It might interest you to read ASUU Latest News on Resumption Today, ASUU Strike Update July 30th, 2022
