The Taraba State University chapter of the
Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on
Wednesday resumed indefinite industrial action
to press home its demands.

Igbere TV recalls that the union had embarked
on a strike in 2018 but suspended it when the
Taraba government promised to meet its
demands, which included the payment of
earned academic allowances from 2014 till
date.
The demand also included the provision of
required infrastructure to enhance teaching
and learning in the university.

However, findings by Igbere TV revealed that
the Taraba State Government is yet to fulfill its
promise.
In a statement made available to Igbere TV on
Wednesday by Samuel Shikaa, the Taraba
Varsity ASUU Chairman, he said that the
lecturers would remain at home until their
demands are met.

Atando Agbu, the local ASUU Secretary, also
disclosed to Igbere TV that the statement was
issued shortly after the Emergency Executive
Council Meeting of ASUU with National
Officials in Jalingo, the Taraba state capital.
Agbu said that the law establishing the
university, which specified adequate funding
for the institution, had been abandoned by the
state government.

“Law no 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 will be used in funding the
university, but all of these have been
neglected.

“If you go round the university, you will
discover that a part from the library and
senate building which are still under
construction, every other buildings you will see
are constructed and furnished by the Tertiary
Education Trust Fund. “If you refer to this
university as TET Fund University, you will not
be wrong because the few infrastructures here
are provided by the fund,” added.
