University non-teaching staff on Nigerian Universities under the auspices of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian University (SSANU) has asked security agencies in the country to go back to drawing board and faction out modalities of defeating Boko Haram.

Speaking at the National Executive Council meeting of the Association, National President of the Union, Comrade Samson Ugokwe also warned the Federal Government not to push Nigerian workers to the wall on the issue of the new National minimum wage, saying the consequences of doing that will be previous.

Ugokwe told security agencies in the country to stop in-fighting among themselves and go back to the drawing board to fight the Boko Haram insurgents that have recently unleashed unslaught on the military and civilians in Borno State.

He said that current reports did not show that Boko Haram has been decimated as claimed by government, saying “the military should go back to the drawing board, they should work together as the in-fighting among the security agencies cannot help in the fight against insurgency. Budget for the Defence should be well utilized and should not be used to drive big cars by security agents.”

SSANU condemned the use of security agencies by the executive arm of government against the legislative arm, describing such action as “a threat to our democracy.”

Ugwoke regretted the Federal Government’s unwillingness to come up with new minimum wage despite its promise, saying “We warm the Federal Government not to push labour to the wall. When it comes to the welfare of workers, they start being economical, but when it comes to election, they easily dish out money to buy votes.”

He also advised the executive arm of government to respect the rule of law and abide by court judgements, adding that the rule of law is the bedrock of democracy which should be respected.

On the 2019 general elections, he warned that the way politicians were going about the political process was frightening and urged politicians to play according to the rules in order not to bring back the military.

The SSANU President who is also Chairman of Joint Action Committee, JAC, of the three non teaching staff unions of the universities disclosed that the Federal Government has released N8 billion Earned Allowances to the unions and that the leadership of the unions would soon meet to come up with sharing formular.
