Non-teaching staffs at the Federal University, Kashere in Gombe state have on Monday shut down activities at the institution over the non-payment of salaries.

 
The Joint Action Committee (JAC) comprising of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (SANU) and National Association of Academic Technologist (NAAT), have staged a peaceful demonstration Monday afternoon, calling for the resignation of the vice chancellor.
 
The JAC chairman of the three affiliate unions, Comrade Mukhtar Muhammad, said the unions have decided to shut down activities at the university over the management’s failure to pay shortfall of August salary and non-payment of the October salary.
 
He said the staffs will be on an indefinite strike until the management pay them their salaries.
 
The unions also accused the management of withholding the October salary, in order to correct the error committed in May, where some staff allegedly received double salary.
 
They hold placard with various caption, “Gana Must go, You cannot be a one-man army,” among others.
 
On his part, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Alhassan Muhammad Gani, said the non-payment of October salary was as a result of delay by IPPIS, a platform used to pay salary by the office of the Accountant-General of the federation.
 
He said already officials from the office of the accountant general are working to rectify the problems.
 
Professor Gani also said the union did not inform the management prior to embarking on the industrial action, he however, urged them not to destroy properties or molested anybody.
 
Gani said we will abide by the documents at his disposal in taking further action on the striking staffs.
