Sokoto State University staff demand 25% salary increase

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities of Sokoto State University has urged the state government and the university management to promptly implement a 25 per cent salary increment for its members. 

This was contained in a press statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Ismail Bala Muhammad, and Secretary, Mansur Ahmad, on Sunday.

According to the statement, the state should take a cue from the Federal Government on the 25 per cent pay rise for university workers.

The union stated that, “We also advocate the prompt implementation of the 25 per cent salary increment as implemented by the Federal Government in all tertiary institutions in the country.

“This increment is crucial to alleviate financial burdens and improve the livelihoods of our members who have long awaited this overdue adjustment.”

They emphasized the importance of prioritizing the welfare of workers.

The union also expressed concern over distorted union dues deduction.

"We express concern and call the attention of the state government to distorted union dues deduction, which is greatly affecting the daily operations of the union and our members.

“Several dialogues with some personnel at the ministry of finance and also through the Nigeria Labour Congress to receive the disbursement of the dues for seven months proved abortive.”

“The same is being experienced in this administration, where our union remittance has been paid in half for the past five months.

“We demand transparency and accountability in the management and remittance of our union dues, to ensure that all deductions are accurately accounted for and utilised for the benefit of our members” the union added.

According to the statement, the state government has to fulfil its commitments regarding the payment of earned allowances to eligible staff members.
