Few months after it proscribed the activities of the Academic Staff Union of universities(ASUU) at the state  University, Anyigba, Kogi State Government has banned the existence of Joint Action Committee (JAC),in all state owned tertiary institutions.

Governor Yahaya Bello  who made the pronouncement Wednesday in Lokoja, the state capital, said the ban also extends to all other existing trade unions in the state owned higher institutions of learning.

This is coming on the heels of the  strike declared by the Joint Action Committee (JAC), of the State Polytechnic, Lokoja.

The  decision, he revealed became imperative as part of measures by his administration towards minimising incessant cases of needless industrial action by staffers of the institutions.

According to the governor, his administration would not fold its arms and allow unpatriotic acts of groups or individuals to mar the future of the state.

He, however, directed the management and governing councils of the affected institutions to ensure strict adherence to the proclamation, asking them to begin the process of engaging suitably qualified persons to fill vacancies that might exist in the event of disobedience.

The Governor restated his commitment to ensuring  uninterrupted academic calendar in the state owned tertiary institutions.
