ASUU kicks against Governor Umahi’s move

Joel Nwankwo, Ebonyi

The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), Ebonyi State University Chapter, has urged the State government to prioritise University Education to improve the system.

The School Union Chairman, Dr. Ikechukwu Igwenyi, on Sunday in an interview gave the advice.

Meanwhile, Governor David Umahi, on Wednesday said he would proscribe ASUU, the Non-Academic Staff of Union (NASU) and other bodies in the Institution.

Igwenyi, reacting to the Governors proscription, said No Governor could proscribe a National Union duly registered and given a charter to operate as all Labour issues are in the exclusive list.

According to him, “We are just a branch of ASUU and National body of the Union is very much aware of the situation in Ebonyi,” the Chairman explained.

The Union Chairman claimed four months of the university worker’s salaries are yet to be paid.

He admonished political office holders to avoid public educational institution collapse.

Also, he called on the staff to remain resolute until their demands are being met by government.
