Strike lecturers at the Taraba State University will continue their three-month long action until the state government fulfils its promises to them.

Strike lecturers at the Taraba State University will continue their three-month long action until the state government fulfils its promises to them.
The chapter Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr Reuben Jonathan, who spoke to Daily Trust, said the need for proper funding of the university by the state government led to the industrial action.
"University is capital intensive and now that the state has delved into, she has to fund it," he said.
Jonathan noted that the state government had refused to pay lecturers five months strike during the infamous national ASUU strike in 2013.
The union leader said after two change in government in the state, the union had only received N100 million of the nearly N500 million owed it.
"Apart from the N100 million given by the state government so far, nothing has come to the university from the state, which is too bad."
He added that the university would not have existed but for the projects executed under the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).
