Striking Varsity Employees Hit Back At FG, Declare ‘No Pay, No Work’ Policy 6

The striking employees in Nigerian universities, on Tuesday declared “No pay, No work” policy, saying the warning strike they embarked upon is now indefinite.

The employees, underneath the auspices of the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), mention laboratories, workshops, farms and others would stay shut until the federal government pays their salaries.

Day by day Trust reports that the workers’ declaration was in response to the federal government’s proclamation that they shouldn’t be paid.

Speaking on their behalf in Abuja, President of NAAT, Ibeji Nwokoma, urged his members to stay undaunted, and not to permit the federal government’s “divide and rule” techniques dampen their morale.

“Today our Union and ASUU have been singled out for the implementation of the policy of “No work, No pay”.


“Comrades, I, your President and indeed the National Leadership stand with you in this making an attempt moment. Our strike action is legitimate and follows each due process.


“We, therefore, stand on “No pay, No work”. This divide and rule policy of Government shall not work. Be rest assured that we will come out better, stronger with every dime paid earlier than or on resumption of work. United we stand for our Union makes us strong,” Nwokoma stated.

The union leader additionally threatened that members of the organized labour would guarantee they work towards anyone who’s antagonistic to workers’ demand in 2023.

He said,

“I call on all employees in Nigeria and our dear NAAT members to rise as much as the occasion by ensuring that we take part actively in all political processes and take our destiny in our hands.”
