ASUU Calls Off Planned Strike, Lauds Gov Eno For Being Labour-Friendly

Living to his reputation as a Labour-friendly leader, Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, met with a cross-section of Labour leaders drawn from Akwa Ibom State University at Government House, Uyo, on Wednesday.

The meeting was held to discuss and resolve some issues that had led the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Akwa Ibom State University branch, to threaten strike action.

Led by Comrade (Elder) Sunny James, the Chairperson of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Akwa Ibom State Chapter, Dr. Inyang Udosen, the Chairperson of ASUU, AKSU chapter, and others, Governor Eno, agreed to address some contentious issues, such as the payments of the 13th-month salary bonus, the three-month palliative, and the construction of some strategic roads within the main campus at Ikot Akpaden, among other issues.

The governor charged the Labour leaders to work closely with the government to deliver democratic dividends to the people of Akwa Ibom State.

He described the university as the pride of the state. He tasked the university’s management with utilising the internally generated revenue to execute some tasks, maintaining that the government will always pay the monthly subvention as and when it is due.

The visibly elated ASUU leaders praised Governor Eno for his labor-friendly disposition and assured him the planned strike would be called off.
