The Joint Research and Allied Institutions Sector Union JORAISU has expressed displeasure with the poor running of Research institutes across the country.
The Chairman of the Union, national Cereals Research Institute Badeggi, NIger State Branch, Doctor Joseph Wayas stated this after leading a peaceful protest of the body.
Doctor Wayas said the neglect suffered by Research institutions was having a negative impact on the economy especially the agricultural sector.
Some workers who spoke with Radio Nigeria pointed out that the industrial action would have a negative effect on the agricultural policies of the government.
The unions which have been on strike nationwide for over two months, insist that the action will not be stopped until their demands are met.
The Joint Union is made up of Academic Staff Union of Research Institutions, non-academic staff union of educational and associated institutions and the senior staff association of university and teaching hospital research and allied institutions.
