According to Daily post, the Academic Staff Union of University, ASUU, Kebbi State University of Science and Technology, Aliero, KSUSTA, chapter, has finalized plans to continue its suspended strike.
What went down
The university’s chapter of the union said it would continue the recently suspended strike. This is because, the Kebbi State Government is yet to solve its several demands.
This Chairman of ASUU in KSUSTA, Dr. Ibrahim Garba Wawata, released a press statement not long after a meeting.
According to the statement, although the strike is not nationwide. Yet, ASUU-KSUSTA faction has resolved to proceed its local strike. This would continue until positive feedbacks are gotten from the state government.
Dr Garba brought the memorandum of action which was signed between the union and the government on April 1 last year to mind.
He explained that nothing had still been done as regards the discharge of the agreement.
What exactly they want
Wawa complained about the manner at which the state government forsook the institution, noting: “They are playing politics with this institution.
“I don’t know how the future of our new generation will be like if the government will continue like this.
“The negotiation committee, headed by the commissioner for Higher Education, who is a former university vice chancellor convened”
“Also, the union resolved that government had agreed to look into their request, but nothing has been done.
“The union outlined some issues categorised into four majors segments, such as staff welfare, implementation and payment of promotion arrears”
” implementation of annual increments and payment of arrears, earned academic allowances, research and development, school infrastructure and funding by the state government.”
Wawata said the reason why they decided to continue with the strike was that the government had done nothing since their last meeting .
He went on to call on the State Government to look into “the recent mass illegal recruitment by the management
So, as you’ve read the strike is not nation wide but stay woke fam! and keep in touch for updates
