Arising from their congress on Friday,  they lamented that instead of the management seeking a truce with the union to meet local demands of the university pending when the National resolve, to their dismay the management invoked “no work, no pay, and followed it up with threats and intimidations.
The unionist, while urging his members whose salaries were withheld to resist pressure and intimidations by the university management said directors, deans and other principal officers whose salaries were paid have committed to donate part of their salaries to support the unpaid lecturers.
 “We want to state here that,  KSUSTA branch of ASSU is still on strike and will not back down, we are resolute and firm on our stand to continue with the strike till our mother union says otherwise he said.
The management of the university had in a letter dated August  9th, 2022, announced the resumption of academic activities in the university. The letter signed by the university academic secretary, Abdulazeez Salihu, mandated students to commence registration procedure within the stipulated period as the management had already approved August 29th, 2022 for the second semester.
