The strike by non-academic unions in public universities has taken its toll on the institutions as they battle filth and struggle to keep services such as electricity and water supplies functional.

MIEC NEWS gathered that although teaching was going on, the strike by non-teaching staff had thrown up various problems in the institutions.

For example, while refuse has piled up at male and female hostels of the University of Calabar, Cross River State, students of the University of Jos are battling with stoppage of water and electricity supplies.

Their colleagues at the University of Nigeria, Enugu campus stated that they contributed N500 per room to pay cleaners they brought from outside to clean their hostels.

The unions, under the Joint Action Committee, commenced an indefinite strike last Friday over failure of the federal government to resolve issues in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.
