ASUU Suspends Planned Strike, Lauds Gov Eno’s Labour-Friendly Disposition

THEWILL APP ADS 2

February 08, (THEWILL) – The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Akwa Ibom State University chapter, has called off its planned industrial action to press home its demand over some unresolved issues between the union and the university management.

This followed a meeting between Governor Umo Eno and the leadership of the NLC and ASUU, led by Comrade Sunny James, Chairman, NLC, Akwa Ibom chapter; Dr. Inyang Udosen, Chairman, ASUU, AKSU chapter, among others, at the Government House, Uyo, on Wednesday.

The meeting was held to discuss and resolve issues that led the university chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to threaten strike action.

Governor Eno promised to address some of the issues, including the payments of 13th-month salary bonus, three-month palliative, and construction of some strategic roads within the main campus at Ikot Akpaden, among others.

The Governor, however, charged the Labour leaders to work closely with the government in delivering democratic dividends to the people of the State.

He described the University as the pride of the State and tasked the University’s management to utilise the internally generated revenue to execute some tasks, maintaining that the government would always pay the monthly subvention as and when due.

The visibly elated ASUU leaders praised the Governor for his Labour-friendly disposition and assured that the planned strike would be called off.
