BREAKING: ASUU Declares Indefinite Strike, Gives Strong Reason

Onyxnewsng reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Taraba State University chapter has declared a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action. This follows a permission by the ASUU national to the state branch to embark on the strike action to press home its demands and the state government’s rebuttal of claims that it is not owing workers salaries, Channels TV reported.

Arising from a congress meeting, the union insists that the rationale behind their action is hinged on government’s failure to pay earned academic allowances, promotion arrears, fractional payment of salaries to staff as well as unsettled staff pension and gratuity scheme.


Mr Samuel Shitaa, the Taraba State University ASUU Chairman, noted that other reasons for the industrial action includes non-implementation of agreements and perimeter fencing of the institution.

On the other hand, the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, has revealed one major duty the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, must embark on when he assumes office.

Ngige, on Wednesday, March 29, said the incoming administration of Tinubu should start discussions on a review of the minimum wage currently obtainable in Nigeria immediately after its inauguration on Monday, May 29.


The minister said the next government should come up with a new minimum wage higher than the current N30,000.
