• ASUU EBSU Chapter Begins Industrial Action.

    Lecturers at Ebonyi State University (EBSU), under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), commenced an indefinite strike on Monday as the State Government failed to fulfill the demands of the union over certain issues.


    According to the Chairman of the union, Professor Ndubuisi Idenyi, the state government failed to release the 2014 Professorial promotion and 2015 promotion of other cadres of academic staff of the institution and none gazetting of Academic Staff for the last 15 years.

    He said that apart from the release of the promotion, the union is also protesting the slashing of their monthly salaries by the State government.

    The union is also calling for the sack of the university Vice Chancellor, Prof Francis Idike, who is said to have stayed beyond his stipulated tenure in office.

    According to the union leader, before the commencement of the industrial action, the union had written to the institution management informing them of their intention to embark on the strike.

    He accused the present state government of being pretentious about most of the issues raised by the union especially gazzeting of the academic staff of the institution adding that the previous administration had approved the sum of 4.1 million for the printing of the gazzete which was to have been done in Enugu before the present government came on board.

    Prof Idenyi further stated that until all the demands are meet, the union would not shift ground and would resist any plan by the government to collapse the institution.

    The ASUU Chairman noted that the union is not scared of the threat of “No work, No pay” policy of the state government and urged the government to urgently do the needful.
