Written by Olarotimi Oshin on November 5, 2022
The University of Jos (UniJos) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reportedly directed lecturers not to resume work until the federal government settles their withheld salaries.
The chairman of ASUU in the University, Dr. Lazarus Maigoro, said this in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
Maigoro said the ASUU members were not on another strike, adding that the decision to stay at home was taken at a congress held on Friday.
According to the Chairman part of the agreement reached with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, was that fifty percent of withheld salaries be paid with immediate effect.
He however maintained that the decision not to teach means that students who have resumed will wait indefinitely while lecturers await the payment of their withheld salaries.
