Education: SSANU protests sack of 45 FUTA staff school teachers

Staff of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State yesterday protested over the alleged dismissal of 45 teachers of the University Staff Primary School by the federal government.

The protesters under the auspices of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities said affected teachers have been served their dismissal letters.

They however vowed that they would resist the development.

The workers of the institution displayed placards with various inscriptions such as ‘Buhari this not the change we voted for. Save our jobs’, ‘Daramola Don’t privatize FUTA Staff Primary School’, ‘Teachers are not 2nd class citizens’, ‘Stop maltreating us in FUTA staff primary School’ etc.

Addressing newsmen, the chairman of the association in the institution, Mr Benedict Chukwudi said that members of SSANU nationwide would begin an indefinite strike from today if the federal government failed to withdraw its circulars that sacked the 2000 members.
