Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State on Monday said has effected the payment of two, out the total four months salaries to the staff of the Niger Delta University, Amassoma.

According to him, the decision to pay the two months salary was part of government's continued efforts at ending the prolonged strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Niger Delta University, branch.

The governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said Dickson, who has repeatedly expressed serious concern over the prolonged strike, stated that, it has been his desire to ensure that the students of the institution return to the classroom.

Dickson said in keeping with his posture of saying things and doing them, he “ordered the relevant organ of government to effect the payment of the two-month salaries to the NDU staff, which has already been carried out.”

Dickson has equally called on ASUU (NDU branch), to reciprocate the his gesture by ending the strike as soon as possible, not to jeopardize the educational careers of thousands of Bayelsa children and those from other parts of the country.
