Senior Staff Association of Nigeria University,(SSANU), National Association of Academic Association Technologists (NAAT) and Non Academic staff Union(NASU) of Ekiti State University, EKSU, has called on Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and management of the Institution to clear all their outstanding entitlements.

Addressing newsmen in the institution, Chairman of SSANU, Azeez Aguda, Mary Adeosun of NAAT and Kolawole Olajutemu of NASU explained that their members were owned N8.6Bn of salaries and allowances, over N1Bn cooperative Societies deduction, over N1Bn Check Off dues and N765m Gratuities.

The leadership of the unions explained that despite their decision to call off the strike embarked upon by NAAT, SSANU and NASU, government still denied them their entitlements.

The Unions noted that the health and wellbeing of their members is paramount to them, as new Students resume in the Institution.

They thereby called on the outgoing Governor of the State, Dr Kayode Fayemi to release their subventions before he leave office.

“For clarity and emphasis, the University is indebted to her Staff members as follows:
Salaries and Allowances- NGN8.6Bn
Cooperative Societies – NGN1.299Bn
Trade Union Check Off Dues – NGN1.227Mn
Gratuities – NGN755Mn”

“The health and wellbeing of our members matter a lot to us hence we may not guarantee their continuous availability to/for their services henceforth and this may have unpalatable consequences on the School, especially now that the new Students are resuming.”

“We are not unaware that the tenure of the outgoing Governor of Ekiti State ends in few days time but, we are also of the firm belief that Government is a continuum.”

“We are however, not losing hope that Dr Kayode Fayemi, our Governor and Visitor to the University can still release parts, if not all of the subventions”
