KWASU-ASUU hails Kwara govt as work begins on collapsed Shao-Malete road culvert, seeks for restoration of varsity subvention

The Kwara State University chapter of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commended the Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq led administration for commencing work on the collapsed culvert linking Shao to Malete road.

The statement personally signed by the chapter chairman, Comrade. Abdulganiyu Shehu Salau appealed to the State government to see the need to provide a panacea to the problem through the construction of an overhead bridge at Shao junction.

The dualisation of the the Shao-Malete road will be helpful in putting a total end to heavy traffic being experienced by staff of the university and other road users in the area, the statement added.

In similar vein, the union has appealed to the state government to fulfil her pledges on EAA and subvention to the university.  The union recalled that it met and got the nodding of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on requests for the settlement of the accrued EAA and restoration of subvention to the university.

According to Comrade. Abdulganiyu, these two requests have not been fulfilled as earlier promised as at the time of writing this report. Stressing a particular need for the restoration of subvention to the varsity, the chairman concluded that out of the five varsities in Ibadan zone of ASUU, KWASU is the only institution that has not been receiving subvention from the government.

The union, while assuring the state government of its unshaken supports and cooperation at all times, appeals to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to restore KWASU monthly subvention and effect the payment of the accumulated EAA to save the university and cushion the effect of the current hardship its members are facing.
