Nnamchi said that ensuring a stable and motivated academic workforce is critical for the development of educational institutions.

He recalled that in 2022, ASUU members went on an eight-month strike due to the Federal Government’s failure to honour past agreements with the union.

He noted that strike actions, aimed at addressing systemic issues, have unintentionally led to financial consequences for dedicated lecturers who participated in the strike.
