Kogi State University (Ksu) Goes On Strike Again
KOGI STATE UNIVERSITY (KSU) GOES ON STRIKE AGAIN
With the recurrence of school strike across the country activities have been disrupted in many campuses and that doesn't seem to getting better for the Kogi State University students.
Though other universities in the country may have resumed from the just concluded warning strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the industrial action may linger on in Kogi State University, Anyigba.
This is because the institution has its own pending issues yet to be settled between the local chapter of ASUU and the government of Kogi State, including the non constitution of the university management council, inability to honour agreements reached that led to the suspension of the recent strike action, among others.
The Chairman of the union, Dr. Daniel Aina, who made the declaration at a Press Conference held at the Union’s headquarters in Anyigba, said members of the body have become disillusioned with the situation at hand, saying that the members of the union are the worst hit by the current economic downturn in the country.
He expressed concerns that Kogi State government has continued to reneged on its promises to it for the umpteenth time, adding that leadership of the union has said the latest industrial action would be total without any consideration since government has not honoured its own part of agreements entered in the past.
Dr. Aina declared that that it will extend the one-week warning strike by its national body, if the state government fail to address its outstanding demands, including offsetting of salary backlog to some of its members.
