“We were surprised when we saw the letter stating that our services are no longer needed by the university,” one of the affected workers said.
They noted that a major challenge facing public universities in Nigeria was incessant strikes by ASUU due to poor funding and lack of infrastructure.
“Also, It has negatively impacted the future of Nigerian students, as a programme of four years now would last for six years,” added the NANS president.
The striking lecturers had embarked on a four-week roll-over comprehensive strike on February 14.
The emergency meeting scheduled for April 6 (today) will be held at the education ministry headquarters in Abuja.
