Taraba University : We will not resume until pending issues are resolved-ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Taraba state chapter says that lecturers of the university will not resume from the ongoing strike until pending issues with the state government are resolved.

The state Chairman of the union, Dr. Samuel Shiikaa stated this on Monday while fielding questions from journalists in Jalingo on Monday.

In a circular to members, a copy of which was made available to newsmen, the union said the peculiar demands of ASUU in the state University were not met by the state government.

The union also said the non implementation of MoU of Feb 2019 agreement which necessitated the nation wide strike was yet be resolved.

The circular, also explained that the renegotiation of 2009 agreement that has to do with review of salaries and mainstreaming of Earned Academic Allowance for members was yet to be resolved and government brought IPPIS to delay the negotiation process.

“The concern of ASUU at the national level also has to do with revitalization fund for public universities while the government was insisting on charging tuition fee for students.

“For us in the Taraba State University, our issues include non implementation of the funding of TSU in line with Law Number 4 of 2008 and lack of payment of Earned Academic Allowance of N10 million monthly to members as well as lack of pension and gratuity.

“Members are therefore, informed that the total, comprehensive and indefinite strike embarked upon by the union is ongoing.”

The circular appreciated all members for their collective resolve in prosecuting ongoing strike and appeal for understanding from the public on the stand of ASUU which they said was in the best interest of the university education.

Recalled that Governor Darius Ishaku had last week approved and directed for the reopening of all tertiary institutions in the state to reopen after a long break as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
