UI CRISIS DEEPENS AS ASUU THREATENS TO STRIKE

UI Crises Deepens As ASUU Threatens
SHOWDOWN With Management

Members of the Academic Staff
Union of Universities (ASUU) in the
University of Ibadan (UI), are
preparing for a showdown with the
authorities of the institution over
part payment of their salaries and
arrears from January 2016 to May.
The Chairman ASUU, University of
Ibadan Chapter, Dr Deji Omole who
disclosed this on Tuesday, stated
that the union members had
reached their patience limit and had
therefore resolved to receive their
full salaries from the Federal
Government and not part-payment
of their salaries again.
He said, “Since January 2016, salaries
have not been paid in full and
deduction were not remitted and we
have been showing understanding
because we were told things will
change once the budget is signed by
the president but immediately after
signing the budget he implemented
increment is fuel pump price rather
than meeting our welfare needs.”
While reacting, the Vice Chancellor
of the institution, Prof Abel Idowu
Olayinka explained that the Federal
Government is presently owing the
institution the sum of N782 million
as shortfall on personnel cost which
had compelled the university not to
be able to pay full salaries and remit
full deductions to staff unions and
cooperatives.
It will be recalled that students of
the university were sent home
recently following protests against
lack of water and power in the
campus.
