The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU Gombe State University chapter, has vowed to hold on to results of their students so long as the government fails to release the withheld salaries for members of the union for the period while they were on strike.
GWG.NG had reported that government paid half salaries to members of ASUU for the month of October to correspond with the time they resumed duties after the eight month long strike action.
Besides holding on to the results of the students, the ASUU members are also threatening to discontinue the supervision of undergraduates and postgraduates projects.
The ASUU chapter in a statement signed by the branch chairman, Suleiman Jauro, said:
“The Congress of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Gombe State University branch, at its meeting held today, Wednesday 2nd November 2022, received the report of the engagements between the branch’s leadership and the University administration over the release of the withheld salaries.
“After exhaustive deliberations, the Congress therefore, resolved that given the University administration’s refusal to release the August and September salaries, members shall not submit the results of the first Semester examination for the 2021/2022 session; Not continue with the supervision of both undergraduate and postgraduate projects allocated prior to the commencement of the strike action,” the ASUU chapter said in their threat to hold on to hold results of their students on account of their withheld salaries.
