We bring you fraternal greetings of the Season.
You will recall that the Joint Union of Nasarawa State Tertiary Institutions (JUNSTI), was forced to write a letter with your mandate to His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Nasarawa state on the malicious Exemption of Nasarawa State Tertiary Institutions from the implementation of promotions/annual increments with effect from August 2021.
To that effect there was no response from the Government up to the time of the expiration of the ultimatum by 12 midnight of Tuesday
You will also recall that in March 2019, We suspended our strike action for this same reason to give Government ample time to respond to our demands which the government committee on the same Issue promptly responded.
Unfortunately,JUNSTI is aware that all tertiary Institution in the State have been maliciously exempted from the magnanimity of His Excellency. Engr. Abdullah A. Sule on the Memorandum submitted by the State Head of Service (HOS) for the implementation of the said promotions For inexplicable reason. We hereby wonder why the HOS will intentionally
create such unacceptable demarcation in a matter that concerns all.
JUNSTI, at its emergency meeting held at College of Agriculture, Science and Technology (COAST), lafia on Wednesday,8th September, 2021,resolved to resume Its suspended strike action with effect from 12:00 am of Thursday 9th September, 2021.
JUNSTI hereby calls on all her members in College of Education, Akwanga Isa Mustapha Agwal Polytechnic Lalia and College of Agriculture, Science and Technology. Lafia to remain at home until further notice.
