Members of the union were directed to resume work immediately marking an end to the strike which was embarked upon by the union since December 2017.

“The union embarked on the strike action on December 4, 2017. This is the 4th month and up till now, the strike has lost direction, it has lost focus. The government is not inviting the union, most universities are in session, academic activities are in progress. And so, we felt the best we could do is to call on our members to resume work immediately.

“This idea was muted by the congress and it was unanimously adopted. On this note, the SSANU members have been directed by the congress of SSANU, Ahmadu Bello University chapter to resume work with immediate effect,” Bello said.

The SSANU members also expressed anger over the purported expulsion of their chapter chairman and resolved that, the letter of expulsion issued to their chairman, Ilyas Abdulrauf Bello was null, void and of no effect.
