ASUU Reiterates Members Won’t Resume To Classes On Empty Stomachs Over 9 Months Unpaid Salaries



Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has reiterated that members of the union will not resume back to classes on empty stomach.

In a press conference at the University of Calabar on Monday, Aniekan Brown who is the zonal chairman of the union, stressed that members of the union won’t resume on empty stomachs.

ASUU has once again taken to its Twitter page to once again lay emphasis that the union won’t go back to classes on empty stomach, while recounting the words of Aniekan Brown. The tweets read;

“The Coordinator of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the South-South region, Aniekan Brown says members of the union cannot return to classrooms on empty stomach.

“Brown who is in charge of Abia, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, and Ebonyi states maintained that in the interim, their members have not been paid salaries for periods ranging from four to nine months, and as such, their members will not return to classes until they are paid.

“He said the Federal Government should adopt it recently invented payment system for Universities with the name University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as the option against the Federal Government Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

“According to him, the Union considers the IPPIS unsuitable for the university system.

He said visitors to state universities should stand up to their responsibilities and state government should not establish universities they cannot fund.

“The Union, therefore, called for the cooperation and understanding of the general public on ASUU’s stance on the aforestated outstanding issues and the IPPIS as members of the union would not return to the classes with empty stomachs.”
