Non Academic Staff at the University of Ibadan have called on the management of the University to be liberal int its dealings with the different category of workers, when it involves meeting workers’ demands.
The workers, speaking incognito to Federationews2day, lamented that the recently released funds for the payment of the arrears of earned allowances tilted in favour of the Academic staff of the institution.
”University management should treat us equally, when it comes to payment of arrears of allowances, a category of staff should not be given preference, it creates bad blood and acrimony”, they stated.
They also urged the university management to expedite action on their other demands, while stressing that workers were facing great difficulties meeting their financial obligations.
In a chat with this medium, the Chairman of the Non Academic staff of Universities(NASU) in the institution, Comrade Oluwasegun Arojo appealed to the workers to be patient and place their trust in God.
”I must tell you that human beings are insatiable and human beings need something every now and then. We need virtually everything, but the fact is that we can’t get all of it. But we are thankful to God, God has been faithful to us, many of our colleagues have passed on. For the fact that we are still alive, we must be grateful to God.”.
”We agitated for so many things, some came, some are yet to come. We are not really giving up, we believe the remaining demands will still come. So, I want our members to put their trust in God and believe God. I still want to assure them that whatever we are expecting, will surely come, they shoud be patient for our demands to be met”, Comrade Arojo concluded.
