The lecturers and the staffs of Abia state University has taken to the street to peacefully protest over unpaid salaries and lack of fund for the university in general. The lecturers can’t resume if their need have not been met by the state government
According to the angry staffs and lecturers the government has been owing them 6 months of salary and now they are expected to resume next week. They also demanded that the school should be converted into a federal University if the state can’t afford to take care of the well being of the staffs and students of the University
Furthermore, they stated that without appropriate funding the school can not be able to acquire the equipment required for the reopening of the school
Recall that the federal government has released a guideline for the safe reopening of schools and before any institution will be allowed to resume they must have acquired it in all and receive approval from the government.
I also use this medium to call on the state government to please pay the staffs and lecturers of the school so that students can return to school..
