The labour crisis in Akwa Ibom State State University which has since crippled academic activities in the university is yet to be resolved as the aggrieved staff and the school management fail to agree on when to resume work.
While the school management has issued a memo signed by the Registrar directing all workers in the institution to resume work with a threat of invoking ‘no work no pay’ policy against defaulting staff, the university staff under the Joint Action Committee, comprising all the labour unions in the university also issued a memo urging all workers to maintain the ‘sit at home’ order.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU) AKSU Chapter, Comrade Idongesit John who spoke with planet news via telephone said the memo by the university management directing staff to resume work would not be complied with.
He argued that the university management had failed to explain if it was receiving up to N327 million naira monthly from the state government as revealed by the state Governor, Udom Emmanuel recently.
Recall that Governor Udom Emmanuel recently in a live broadcast to the people of the state directed immediate reopening of the institution for academic activities, while saying that his administration pays 327 million naira grant to the university every month.
