Prof. Izam disclosed on Thursday while briefing Journalists in Bokkos and said the funds released had addressed some part of the lingering demands of the unions who embark on strike.

It could be recalled that members of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) of the institution had embarked on indefinite strike to press home their demands.

 

Non payment of earned allowances for many sessions were part of the main issues that necessitated the internal strike action by the unions.

 

But the vice chancellor explained that the funds released was disbursed among the unions, adding that there was an insight that the unions would call off the internal strike when the national body of ASUU declared the current strike.
