The union’s , Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi made the call in an with the News Agency of (NAN) on Sunday in .

Recall that the union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) had at the end of its meeting at the Federal of Technical Akure (FUTA) in Ondo, on Nov. 4, 2018, declared a ‘total, comprehensive and indefinite’ nationwide strike.

The strike, was however suspended on Feb. 7, after series of negotiations between the parties and other concerned stakeholders.

But Ogunyemi told NAN on Sunday that “Government has not kept faith with our MOA signed on February 7.

“What government ought to have done, they do not want to do any more. They have literally gone to sleep.

“For instance they had promised before the suspension of the strike, to set up visitation panel to our universities within two weeks and three months after government has not done anything in that regard.

“At least not to my knowledge that they had put any panel in place nor inaugurate any.

“By February 28 of this year, government had promised to pay the union, N25 billion part payment of outstanding arrears of the EARN academic allowances.

“Our renegotiation with Dr Wale Babalakin had promised to put us in a more cordial path with fair guidelines when we cone back to the renegotiation table but now, there seem to be no change of attitude on the side of government.”

According to him, the union has a timeframe attached to every action, hence the current call for caution on the part of government.

He explained that government had told the union that the funds had been approved, but Ogunyemi said that there was a huge difference between approval of such funds and its implementation.

He said that three months after the said approval, the funds were yet to get to the union.

“Our members have begun to express doubts about government’s to fulfill its pledge faithfully.

“And when this pressure begins to mount there is nothing the leadership can do because leadership must hearken to the voice of followers.

“The point is that we are not keen about disrupting the academic calendar. What we are doing is to express our worries and carry the public along.

“So, Nigerians must come out now and speak to government concerning all these things raised to maintain the current precarious industrial stability on our campuses ” he said.

He said that though the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu had assured the union that the payment would soon be done, but he expressed concern that time was of essence his members nationwide. (NAN)

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the
    nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough
    men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for
    something regarding this.

Most offices were under lock and key, as members of both unions were seen singing solidarity songs and marching round the school premises.

Other academic activities were also affected as students were seen loitering on campus.

Addressing newsmen at the UNIPORT Campus, the branch Chairman of SSANU, Benard Eze, expressed grievances over the non-payment of their earn allowances by the Federal government.

According to Eze, “The agreement for earn allowances with the Federal Government was reached since 2009. It is 10 years now and nothing has been said about it. We are saying that those agreements are overdue. The things there are dead and worn-out.

“We want the Staff School Teachers to be reinstated. The earn allowance of N25billion where took 80% and they gave 20% to us is unacceptable. We are asking that the N30billion as backlog of the debt be paid to us.

“This is just a warning and see what is happening. By the time we start the indefinite one should just imagine how the strike will look like.”

On his part, the NASU Chairman, Ogbegbe Osoruchi lamented that so many members had since lost their lives in the struggle.
