The branches of Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) in universities and inter-universities centres across the country have served notice of two weeks warning strike to the Federal Government over what the unions described as a non-challant attitude of the government to their demands.
