The Media Director, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Imo State University Chapter, Prof. Valene Obinna, has vowed that the strike action by the union would not be called off until all unpaid salaries are settled.

Obinna told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Owerri on Monday that the union carried out the action to protest non-payment of March and April salaries of its members as well as other issues which the union had been agitating for.

Obinna, who stated that the strike was not political, explained that its timing had nothing to do with the just concluded elections.

However, the University Public Relations Officer, Mr Raphael Njokuobi, said the issue of unpaid salaries was not peculiar to the state.

He said that Gov. Rochas Okorocha had made efforts to raise funds to pay workers salaries in the state.

A final year student of the Department of Microbiology, Mr Obinna Nwaobia said that lectures had yet to commence before the commencement of the strike.

He said that seminars for final year students which were scheduled to begin this week had been cancelled as a result of the strike.

Another student Marylin Izukanne of the department of Mass Communication said she had just returned from home before the strike started.

She added that she would have remained at home if she had known that there would be a delay in the resumption of academic activities. (NAN)
