Academic Staff Forum of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has resolved to join the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
According to a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer, Dr Chuks Enwerem, the forum held a meeting on 3rd December, 2020, to discuss modalities for getting its share of the Earned Academic Allowance (EAA) released by the Federal Government to ASUU.
The forum later had a second meeting on February 2, 2021, at the Convocation Arena, NOUN Headquarters, Jabi, Abuja.
Chairman of the forum, Professor Abubakar Suleiman, briefed members on the progress made towards getting a staff of the university to be included in the payment loop.
He said that after extensive deliberations with ASUU officials in the North Central, coupled with other available information, they were convinced that it would be very difficult for NOUN academics to get their entitlement by going it alone without the national body.
Members of the forum generally resolved to join the national body without further delay.
They consequently mandated the executive committee to follow up on the membership process.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
