Kwara State Tertiary Institutions Threaten Strike Action

Workers in Kwara State-owned tertiary institutions, under the umbrella of the Committee of Unions in Tertiary Institutions (CUTI), have issued a 14-day ultimatum to the government on the commencement of an industrial action.

A statement signed by Mr. AbdulLateef Yahya, the state Public Relation Officer (PRO) of CUTI, stated that within the stipulated period of 14 days, the state government should implement the National Minimum Wage or risk industrial action in all the institutions.

According to Yahya, the association reached the decision to embark on the strike during a statewide tour of CUTI, consulting with stakeholders through joint congresses at the Colleges of Education in Oro and Lafiagi as well as College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies (CAILS), Ilorin.

The association described the exclusion of the state tertiary institutions from the implementation of the new minimum wage as unfair, adding that all efforts by the Committee, through several letters and meetings with the state government representatives on the need to include CUTI in the minimum wage, were futile.
