CHAPTER ONE

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The Nigerian educational sector have experienced huge setbacks for a long time because of the issue of strike; the so-called reason for the strike is due to the inability of the federal government of Nigeria to meet up with the teachers, lecturers and other educational bodies demands either for the increase in salary or for non payment of salary by the federal government of Nigeria. The issue of strike have become a major clog on the educational sector; as at 1st july 2013, federal university of agriculture makurdi was strike due to the inability of the federal government of Nigeria to meet up with their retirement age request of 85 years in office. This made the academic staff of the federal university of agriculture makurdi to go on an indefinte strike. This has had a negative effect on the academic performance of students, and the scheduled year of graduation of the final year students.

The issue of strike is not only on the educational sector, it also affects the NYSC programme; there have being a question of how does the issue of strike affect the NYSC program in Nigeria, the simple reason here is that universities can not send the names of their students for the NYSC call up because of the issue of strike.

The issue of strike have a significant effect on both the incoming and outgoing students; universities can not admit new students while on strike because of the unavailability of the academic staff to conduct and admit new students.

We all know that education is an instrument of change and national development. It is a social process and the medium for the acquisition of relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes for survival in a changing world as well as the strengthening of democratic institutions witnessed the world over including Nigeria.

Investing in any form of education, however, can only have the intended impact if there are well trained and competent teachers, and the implications of this is for quality teacher education in the country.

The Universal Basic Education (UBE) program was launched in Nigeria in 1999 and passed into law in 2004 as one of the strategies aimed at implementing the educational component of the MDGs. Before the commencement of the scheme, the Nigerian educational structure comprised six years of primary education, three of junior secondary, three of senior secondary and four of tertiary education.

Although universal primary education (UPE) was launched nationwide in 1976, long before world leaders launched the concept as one of the MDGs, limited success was achieved as attendance was not made compulsory for pupils of school-going age. With the passage of the UBE Act, all tiers of government in Nigeria were mandated to provide free, compulsory nine-year universal basic education. Parents are required to ensure that their wards register for and complete the basic education cycle. The research work will look more into the effect of strike on the educational sector using the federal university of agriculture makurdi as a case study.
