At a joint service at the TEKAN/ECWA Church in Jalingo at the weekend, Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku vowed to ensure that university lecturers in the state involved in the recent strike by the University Staff Union (ASUU) are brought to book. During a joint service at the TEKAN/ECWA Church in Jalingo at the weekend, the governor said the instructors would not receive their monthly salary for the eight months they spent away from the four walls in class. He said there was no reason for state-owned university lecturers to join the ASUU strike.” I will not pay Taraba State University lecturers who participated in the protracted University Staff Union (ASUU) strike.”
He confirmed that “educators will face the consequences of keeping students home for more than eight months” and believes his actions will deter other educators.
“We at the Wing were accused of sending our children abroad to school, and when we asked our teachers to return to the classroom so that the children of ordinary people could have an equal education, they refused.”
The governor, who claimed that his government had laid the foundation for every government after his tenure, urged the people to put aside their differences for the rapid development of the state. Some speakers have vowed to resist the governor’s attempts to harm those who sided with the ASUU state agency.
lecturers at the agency’s university, who confided in our journalists who sought the protection of the pen, said: “If he carries out his threats, we will not hesitate to mobilize and thwart his political ambitions.”
