The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) made a demand some few days ago and told The Federal Government that the Strike will be called-off if they agreed on their conditions. Unfortunately the F.G are not ready to comply and this has made ASUU to cry out that they need their Salaries.
ASUU are demanding among others, immediate payment of all outstanding salary arrears and allowances of members withheld during the strike. (4-months salaries, and if the strike is not call off soon, the F.G will have to pay them 5months.)
The Secretary of the University of Uyo, UNIUYO Branch of ASUU, Dr Aniekan Brown, debunked the claim that ASUU was making fresh demands.
“ASUU is not making fresh demands, ASUU is asking for the implementation of 2009 agreements.
“If any ASUU member says ASUU is making fresh demands, I doubt if that person is an ASUU member, that person is not informed,” Brown said.
ASUU is demanding among other things, immediate payment of all outstanding salary arrears and allowances of members withheld during the strike.
The union is also demanding a written commitment from the president that N225 billion will be committed to funding Universities annually for the next four years.
Meanwhile, The University of Nigeria, Unn has announced that they will resume academic activities if ASUU fails to comply with the Federal Government.
More Drama continues as we await for the Federal Government to either pay ASUU members their salaries or sack them come 4th December, 2013.
