ASUU Calls Off Its Intended Strike In Akwa Ibom



In Akwa Ibom State, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has canceled its scheduled work stoppage.
The union adopted the resolution in response to Governor Umo Eno’s intervention to address some of their issues, according to a statement made on Wednesday by Mr. Ekerete Udoh, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Umo Eno. He mentioned that the governor met at Government House, Uyo, with a group of labor leaders from Akwa Ibom State University, and that during the meeting, the governor pledged to build some key roads within the main campus at Ikot Akpaden, as well as to offset the 13th month salary bonus and three months of palliative care.

The governor tasked the leaders of the Labour Party with collaborating closely with the government to provide Akwa Ibom State residents with democratic dividends.
