Kogi State University academic and non-academic staff of the institution has announced an indefinite strike on Monday. The university workers under the auspices of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) are calling for the removal of the vice chancellor.
Speaking on the strike action, the chairman of SSANU, KSU chapter, Comrade Moses Balogun, said that the workers are suffering from poor welfare and gross mismanagement had reduced the quality of learning in the institution.
He blamed the university governing council and the management for the unfortunate fall in quality of the institution.
