MAPOLY Lecturers Groan Over Four Months Unpaid Salaries By Ogun Govt


ABEOKUTA - Lecturers of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Ogun state are lamenting over their four months unpaid salaries by the state government.

The lecturers under the auspices of Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) accused the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for being insensitive to their plight.

The union said the governor failed to give approval to workers' outstanding March and April salaries from the internally generated revenue which has been on his table since almost a week ago. 

They explained that the governor's lackadaisical attitude towards the welfare of the workers is making life unbearable for the workers as their case is becoming hopeless despite their unwaivered sacrifice to the institution and the state.

The ASUP Chairman, Comrade Chibuzor Osifalujo while speaking on behalf of the entire workers expressed dissatisfaction over government's late approvals.

He further claimed that the non-approval of workers' salaries in due time has caused serious health issues to them adding that the institution in the last two weeks lost a staff due to common curable malaria.

In his words, "I have personally been sick waiting patiently that once salary is approved for payment, i will go for treatment only to be reliably informed that the governor was not on seat yet, our salaries not approved before he left. Does he want us to keep dying?"
