The Taraba State University chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commenced a total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action.

The decision was made following the ASUU national’s permission to the state branch to embark on the strike to demand the payment of earned academic allowances, promotion arrears, fractional salaries to staff, as well as unsettled staff pension and gratuity scheme.

In addition to the non-payment of salaries and benefits, ASUU Taraba State University chapter cited non-implementation of agreements and perimeter fencing of the institution as reasons for the industrial action.

Reacting to the strike action, the state government, through the Commissioner for Tertiary Education Edward Baraya, stated that the union had not communicated their action to the state government.
