The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Nsukka Zone, has demanded for the punctual payment of salaries and the immediate implementation of the 2009 agreement it entered with the federal government.
Acting Coordinator for the Zone, Professor Suleiman Muhammed, stated this after a meeting held at the Benue State University (BSU), Makurdi. He said: "The shortfall in personnel cost to federal public universities, non-payment of salaries in state universities and flagrant breaches of the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreement has not only thrown workers in the public universities into very serious problems but has also financially embarrassed these categories of workers, thus compounding the woes of university workers who have had to cope with poor welfare, office accommodation, research, teaching and learning condition."
