The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti chapter has said it will not end its ongoing indefinite strike until the salaries of its members are paid by the state government.
The Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose and the union had been engaged in series of dialogue since the beginning of the week, but no agreement has been made to provide resolution to the ongoing strike.
The strike action commenced on Wednesday, January 16, two weeks after the university management announced the resumption of academic activities.
The lecturers are protesting the non-payment of seven months subventions and salary arrears. The state government however blamed the situation on the paucity of funds, urging the lecturers to return to work while efforts are being made to raise the needed funds.
