Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has threatened to go on strike, if the Federal Government implements some aspects of the Needs Assessment report recommending the reduction of non-teaching staff.
It said the rot in the universities was not caused by non-teaching staff.
At a workshop to sensitize its members at the University of Benin on the Needs Assessment, National Vice President of SSANU Alfred Jimoh accused the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of collaborating with the Federal Government to sack them.
Jimoh described the affected versions as “demonic verses laced with some poisonous and odious recommendations.”
He said the section was antagonistic and unacceptable.
Jimoh spoke at 47th quarterly zonal executive council meeting (ZEC), western zones of SSANU.
National Public Relations Officer NadAboribo said they were sensitizing and enlightening their members on the contents of the Needs Assessment.
Comrade Nad said they were crying out before the Federal Government implements the report.
