By Monsurudeen Olowoopejo

The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools,(NAPPS) has pulled out of ongoing industrial action embarked upon by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) to demand for wage increments from the Federal Government.

The umbrella body of private school owners stated that none of its members would be joining the industrial action, saying the issue could be addressed through other means.

NAPPS, meanwhile, cautioned labour unions against any security breach around premises of its members during their industrial action.

In a statement released yesterday and signed by its National President, Samira Jibril, and the Secretary, Dr. Kayode Adeyemi.

According to the statement, “The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools,(NAPPS) Nigeria, has carefully considered the implications and objectives of the NLC/ TUC proposed indefinite strike,in line with our strategic position as the umbrella Association for all Private School Owners in Nigeria.

“In consideration of our non-affiliated position with NLC/TUC and Association objectives, our esteemed members are hereby requested, not to participate in the indefinite strike as proposed by NLC/TUC to commence on Monday 3rd June, 2024; once there are no security breach against our operations and learners movement.

“While we recognize the importance of collective action and support the right to peaceful protest, we believe that our members’ interests and priorities are best served through other means of advocacy and engagement.

“As a national professional association, our focus remains on advancing the interests of our members, promoting professional development and exploring the
most effective strategies to addressing the issues and concerns that have prompted calls for the indefinite strike.

“We hold the firm believe, that by working together and engaging in meaningful discourse, we can achieve positive outcomes for our profession and the broader community”.
