The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Yusuf Maitama University Kano, has threatened to embark on a strike over unaddressed demands presented to the Kano State Government. 

In a statement signed by the branch Chairman, Mansur Yusuf Said, and Secretary, Yusuf Ahmed, the union expressed dismay over the prolonged neglect of its demands by the state government despite previous assurances and agreements.

The statement highlighted several critical issues, including the immediate payment of outstanding Earned Academic Allowance (EAA) and Adjustment Arrears totaling N111,321,792.18.

In addition, the union called for the implementation of the newly approved Consolidated Universities Academic Salary Structure II (CONUASS II), effective from January 1, 2023, a move already adopted by federal universities but yet to be implemented by the state government.

ASUU also raised concerns about the non-payment of a provisional wage award of N35,000 for six months, approved by the federal government.

“While civil servants in the state received this allowance, university staff members are yet to receive any payment,” the statement added.
