The Niger Delta University has joined the Academic Staff Union of Universities in its two-week warning strike over issues relating to the 2009-2019 memorandum of understanding with the Federal Government.
This was made public by the school owned NDU Radio 98.1FM where all pending exams are now being shifted till after the two-week warning strike.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has described the ongoing two-week-old warning strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as illegal and shocking.
Mr Ngige said the announcement of the strike “came as a shock”. Speaking at the end of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday in Abuja, the minister said the last discussion the federal government had with ASUU was that the union should nominate a person to “serve (on) the IPPIS committee”.
