University of Jos chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) commenced an indefinite “sit-in strike” to call for earned allowances paid to them by the Federal Government after the nationwide ASUU strike.
They said that what they were doing is just to mount pressure on the university authority to put its house in order to avert further complication of issues.
The lecturers were in their offices, but did not make any attempt to go to classes to teach the students.
“Nobody wants to go on strike again especially when we have just returned from one. So, this earned allowance, which we are talking about, is no small money that can be overlooked. We want it, it is part of our demands,” the lecturers said.
