Taraba: ASUU embarks on indefinite strike

The Taraba State University branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Wednesday resumed indefinite strike action to press home its demands.

The union had embarked on a strike in March last year but it was suspended when the Taraba government promised to meet its demands.

The strike was communicated in a document sent to the University management and signed by branch Chairman of ASUU Dr. Samuel Shiikaa and Secretary Dr. Atando Agbu.

The union announced the strike shortly after its Executive Council Meeting with national officials in Jalingo.

The statement said the law establishing the university which specified funding for the institution had been abandoned by the State government.

“Law N0. 4 of 2008 specified that five per cent of the state allocation,  five per cent of the Local Government allocation and two per cent of all contracts would be used in funding the university but all of these have been neglected.

“The ASUU executive council of the Taraba State University has resumed the strike action over issues of funding which led to non-payment of earned academic allowances from 2014 till date, non-provision of required infrastructure to enhance teaching and learning.

“If you go round the university, you will discover that apart from the library and senate building which are still under construction every other building you will see were constructed and furnished by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.

“If you refer to this university as TETFund university, you will not be wrong because the few infrastructures here are provided by the fund. The strike is, therefore, total, comprehensive and indefinite,” he said.

Mr. Ande Boyi, the President, National Association of Nigerian Students, Taraba State University chapter appealed to Governor  Darius Ishaku to quickly meet ASUU’s demands to enable students to continue with studies.
