Non-academic activities at the University of Benin are on a standstill as non-teaching staff under the umbrella of Joint Action Committee join their counterparts to embark on an indefinite nationwide strike.
Amenze Obarisiagbon reports that the JAC started the strike as a result of unresolved issues with the Federal Government.
Chairmen of the Joint Action Committee including Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and the National
Association of Academic Technologists, University of Benin Chapter, comment on the rationale behind the strike.
They said UNIBEN is fully complying with the directive from the national body.
The chairman of the Joint Action Committee who also doubles as the National President of SSANU, Samson Ugwoke said the nationwide strike would be total and comprehensive.
Only a handful of students were seen within the UNIBEN premises, an effect caused by the ongoing ASUU strike.
