By Farombi Oluwaseun
The Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile - Ife, Osun State, has paid the Earned Allowance to its workers in compliance with the Federal Government directives that the money released be paid to every segment of the University workforce.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, affirmed that members of all the Unions: Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), Non Academic Staff Union (NASU), Senior Staff Association of Nigeria University (SSANU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) benefited from the Earned Allowance.
It will be recalled that the non teaching staff unions of Universities, comprising the Non Teaching Staff Union (NASU), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian University (SSANU) and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) have embarked on an indefinite strike action against the Federal Government over an alleged disparity in the disbursement of Earned allowance to all the staff unions in Nigerian Universities.
With this development, the management, has appealed to its striking workers to sheath their sword and allow peace to reign on campus.
However, as at the time of filing this report, efforts to reach the NASU Chairman, OAU branch , Comrade Odewunmi , proved abortive as all his lines were switched off.
