FEDERAL UNIVERSITY WORKERS PROTEST NON PAYMENT OF WITHHELD SALARIES IN EBONYI                                                                                                                                          09-07-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                    University workers under the aegis of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU and Non Academic Union of Allied and Education Institutions, NASU in Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ikwo, Ebonyi State have held a protest march to demand the immediate payment of their four months withheld salaries by the Federal government.

The workers who carried placards with various inscriptions such as “Federal government pay us our salaries and stop divide and rule” marched from the Needs Assessment Building to the Campus Gate before terminating at the Administrative Block.

Addressing newsmen, the Chairman of SSANU, Comrade Onyebuchi Mpamugo wondered why the Federal government had refused to release the withheld salaries even when President Bola Tinubu had given approval that the money be paid.

The Chairman of NASU, Comrade Chibuike Igwe explained that the Unions would picket both the Ministry of Education and other concerned government agency in Abuja if the withheld salaries were not released by Thursday this week.

The Chairman Nigeria Labour Congress in the State, Professor Ogugua Egwu who later joined the protest described the action of the government as inhuman pointing out that it was a violation of non victimization clause signed by the Unions to end 2022 University Workers strike in Nigeria.
