    OAU SSANU Takes Part in Nationwide Rally Over Eithheld Wages

    The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), OAU chapter, has joined the nationwide protest against the withholding of salaries by the Federal Government.


    Members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) branch, held a peaceful demonstration on Tuesday to express their concerns regarding the non-payment of their salaries for the past four months.

    The branch Chairman, Dr. Taiwo Arobadi, stated during a one-day protest held at the university campus in Ile-Ife that the union’s negotiations with the Federal Government have reached an impasse.

    On July 7th, the national union organization issued a directive mandating all branches to conduct a one-day nationwide protest to voice their concerns regarding outstanding salary payments and other unresolved matters.

    Arobadi expressed his belief that the incident could have been prevented and avoided. He respectfully requests that the Minister of Education take appropriate action to address the situation.

    He also urged the Minister of Labor and Employment to take proactive measures to avert any potential disruptions or conflicts within the university system.

    SSANU chairman expressed the necessity for action due to the government’s failure to adhere to agreements reached with the Union. He urged stakeholders to promptly intervene to prevent the situation from escalating into industrial unrest.

    He requested the prompt payment of the members’ four-month withheld salary and the elimination of discrimination between academic and non-teaching staff of universities, among other requests.
