Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri, staff protest, demand payment of salary arrears, allowances


Members of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri, have protested what they described as the management’s insensitivity to their welfare.

They lamented that their members face challenges such as promotions without financial benefits, selective salary payments, non-payment of salary arrears, non-payment of earned academic allowances, and non-remittance of union check-off/welfare dues.

They also raised concerns about the non-remittance of pension deductions, non-payment of annual salary increments, non-implementation of wage increases, and IMSU’s inclusion in the Treasury Single Accounts (TSA) system.

The union disclosed that some members are owed between eight and twelve months’ salary arrears.

In a statement jointly signed yesterday by the Chairperson of the association, Dr. Odinakachukwu Ejiogu, and Secretary, Lazarus Chikwendu, respectively, after a peaceful protest, they said: “The academic staff members of Imo State University (IMSU) are facing many pressing welfare issues that require the immediate attention and intervention of the Governor of Imo State and Visitor to Imo State University.

“The key issues we are calling to the attention of the governor are specified as follows:

“Promotion Without Financial Benefits. Selective Salary Payment and Non-Payment of Arrears of Salaries: Unexplained deductions or skipped payments for several months. In February 2022, ASUU-IMSU visited the Imo State Government Data Room to resolve
