Barely a month after the non-academic unions of the University of Ibadan, UI, protested and paralyzed all activities over some allowances the institution owes the staff, there is a strong indication that they have concluded plans to embark on another protest over nonpayment of some allowances.
The non-academic unions in the institutions are: Senior Staff Association of Universities, SSAU, Non-Academic Staff Union, NASU, and National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).
Investigations revealed that the unions’ executives have mobilized their members for what they called a congress to be held Wednesday.
In the invitation they sent out through different means, they said, “Aluta Continua”.
Investigations revealed that they had concluded arrangements to close all the gates leading to the institution thereby disallowing anyone from gaining entrance into the institution.
They are also poised to ensure that no academic activity takes place until their demands are met.
If the protest is not averted, the matriculation ceremony of the institution slated for Thursday, 10 March, 2016 might not hold.
