Lecturers Protest in UNIPORT Over Non Payment of 22 Month Salaries 

The lecturers  of University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) staged a protest over the non-payment of their 22 month salaries. 

The angry lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) halted the academic activities on campus today. They under the leading of their ASUU chairman Dr. Darlington Uzoma, trooped out en masse from the secretariat of the union to the senate building of the university. 

Uzoma said, “About 20 of our members in UNIPORT are being owed 22 months’ salaries because of the carelessness of the Federal Government through the payment system it adopted.” 

Recall that the deliberate payment of half salaries by the federal government sparked outrage from the ASUU, with each unit being told to take a day to protest. It was learnt that the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and University of Jos (UNIJOS) had both embarked on their respective lecture-free day.
