The purpose of this study was to find out the impact of incessant strike actions and industrial disputes in Cross River University of Technology and its effect on students' motivation to learning. Over the years, a considerable amount of effort has been put on ground in order to run the Cross River University of Technology devoid of financial incapacitations which has perpetually crippled its optimum functionality as an academic institution involved in man power training and development. In a wider context, there is an increased emphasis on a sound and balanced education which influences an individual's competitiveness and meets the requirements of the global village. The requirement for today's graduate is that he must be prepared to meet the demands of the national economy by possessing the requisite ability to compete with other graduates produced in other parts of the world. Requisite skills and knowledge is a key source of competitive advantage, often being regarded as the key differentiator between developed nations and many other developing or third world countries. The motivation of students to study is affected by all institutional components -- including people, processes, rules and decision making activities involved in the administration of academic service delivery and the benefits to students in exchange for school fees paid to the University .Data was collected through questionnaires distributed to 60 students of the Institution to seek their reactions to the cycle of strikes which in the last two years [2013 to 2015] has totalled 12 calendar months of lost academic activity. The result revealed that students are grossly demotivated and discouraged to pursue academic studies in CRUTECH and that the strike actions have had significant negative effect on the motivational level of student to learn. Secondly lengthy stay at home makes them unqualified to partake in the National Youth Service scheme due to age constraints or barriers arising from above. Based on the analysis of the data, it was recommended that to reduce incessant strike actions caused by financial incapacitations, conceited efforts such as running more study programs as a means of revenue generation should be made by the school authorities to fund the school to avert total collapse of academic activities and dearth in balanced education.
