The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of Taraba State University on Wednesday announced the resumption of an indefinite strike to accentuate its demands.

The Union had initially embarked on an indefinite strike to make the government aware of its demand in 2018. However, the strike was promptly suspended when the Taraba state government made promises to meet the demands of the Union which included payment of earned academic allowances owed to the Union from 2014 till date and the provision of necessary infrastructure to enhance teaching and learning.

The ASUU Chairman of Taraba State University ASUU, Dr Samuel Shikaa and the Secretary, Dr Atando Agbu, after the Executive Council Meeting with national officials in Jalingo revealed that lecturers will remain at home until the demands of the Union are met.

The President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NASS) in Taraba State University Chapter, Mr Ande Boyi, has reacted to the news of the indefinite strike. In a statement which was released by the association, Mr Ande appealed to Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State to meet the demands of the Union so as to enable students of the University to resume lectures.
