Gaya urged parents, students, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and other stakeholders to prevail on the Federal Government to honour the agreements reached with the union, and re-negotiate to address the issues at stake to end the lingering strike by its members.
He said:”The Federal Government recently introduced Integrated Public Pay Information System (IPPIS) which undermines university autonomy and grossly incompatible with the university system.
It is important to note that the Federal Government has subjugated our members in University of Maiduguri and Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike into untold hardship by withhelding their salaries since Feb. 2020.
“Also our members in other universities have their salaries stopped since July 2020.”
