The Academic Staff Union of Universities Owerri Zone has threatened to embark on another industrial action over Federal Government’s refusal to implement the Memorandum of Action (MOA) signed with the union in December last year, Siggy reports.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities Owerri Zone has threatened to embark on another industrial action over Federal Government’s refusal to implement the Memorandum of Action (MOA) signed with the union in December last year, Siggy reports.

It accused Federal Government of breaching most of the timelines on the MOA, including payment of N30billion by January as part of one trench of the N220 billion which it alleged had been in the CBN vaults since then.

Briefing reporters on Thursday in Awka, Zonal Coordinator, Comrade Uzo Onyebinama, said it was unfortunate the union would contemplate another strike barely nine months it suspended the last one.

He however said they were left with no choice since it seemed strike was the only language the government understands.

He refuted government’s claims of wide corruption being addressed by IPPIS in universities financial management, calling for release of white paper and the report of the visitation panels as well as reconstitution of the governing councils of the three Universities of Agriculture at Abeokuta, Makurdi and Umudike, respectively.

According to him: “We’ve tried to look for other alternative avenues to attract the government attention, but all appears meaningless to them. It’s obvious that it’s only when we embark on strike that they will look our way.
