Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities in Taraba, have organized an intercessory prayer session over the incessant strike action by the body.
According to Mbave Garba, who is the former Vice Chairman of the union, the prolonged strike action is not ordinary, hence, the need to intervene with prayers.
In his words,
“We have no other choice at this point than to turn to God for intervention because we have exhausted all other means to resolve the issues.
“Apart from the nation-wide strike action over IPPIS and other issues, we have serious internal matters with the management and with funding of the university.
“Our members have gone for two months without salary and without any explanation for such action from the Taraba government and university management.”
Meanwhile, members of the union in Calabar have vowed to continue with the strike until the Federal Government meets the union’s demands, stating that they will not go back to the classes on empty stomachs.
