BSU: ASUU Vows To Continue Strike

The strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Benue State University, has continued following the inability of the university management to meet the demands of the union.

This was disclosed by the Chairman of ASUU-BSU, Dr. Kwaghfan Tarnongo while speaking to journalists in his office on Wednesday in Makurdi.

He disclosed that the management of the university was yet to meet the demands of ASUU.


The ASUU-BSU chairman, who exonerated the Benue State Government, stated that the government paid about N70 million monthly to address their demands and wondered why the university management refused to pay them.

Tarnongo revealed some of the demands of ASUU to include: incremental arrears, promotion and earned academic arrears, among others.

Explaining further, the Chairman pointed out that in academic allowances alone, the BSU management was owing 44 months for the old staff and 23 months for the new staff.


He lamented that as Benue citizens they have the interest of the students at heart but there was no alternative to the action they took to press home their demands.

When journalists sought the reaction of the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Tor Iorapuu, he declined comment.

He, however, said the State Government was involved in the matter.
