Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, was shut on Wednesday following protests by workers under the aegis of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non Academic Staff Union, and National Association of Academic Technologists.
The workers vowed not to return to work until the State Government pays them their March to May salaries.
Both academic and non-academic activities were paralysed as students were turned back by the aggrieved staff, who shut the two entrances to the institution.
SSANU Chairman, Comrade Kolawole Falade, told Punch: “The three unions-SSANU, NASU and NAAT-met under the Joint Action Committee on Tuesday and decided to embark on the protest to demand payment of our three months salaries.
“We have also not received our earned allowances from 2012 up till date. We also need a Governing Council of the university.
“There is also need for the State Government to increase the monthly subventions to the university from N260 million because of the College of Medicine.”
