The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU of the Kano State University of Science and Technology, Wudil has called for the payment of 2014 promotion arrears of staff or else they would disrupt academic activities in the institution.
This was contained in a statement signed by Dr. Abdulkadir Muhammad and Arc. Kashim Ibn Yakubu, Chairperson and Secretary of the union in Kano on Sunday, July 26.
The statement stated that the union had observed with dismay, the continued delay in the implementation of the 2014 promotion exercise, adding that the promotion exercise was conducted in October 2014 across different cadres of staff, but that the university had failed to implement it with cash backing.
ASUU added that the development had resulted in accumulation of arrears spanning over nine months. “The union views this development as unacceptable and is capable of breaching the existing industrial peace and harmony in the university. “The government, the public, students and other critical stakeholders should not blame the union if the matter is not resolved,” the statement read in part.
