The Governing Council of University of Ibadan has directed the University Bursar, Michael Alatise to pay verified earned academic allowances released by the Federal Government without further delay.
It was also learnt that the Chairman of University of Ibadan Council Nde Waklek who presided over the meeting alongside Vice Chancellor Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka has constituted a three-man committee to decide on how the N105million belonging to the non-teaching staff in the Institution will be shared.
Sources said during yhe meeting, the Council appealled to the striking Non academic workers to go back to work while negotiation continues at the National level between leaders of the Joint Action Congress and the Federal Government.
It will be recalled that trouble started when the Federal government disbursed N1.6billion for the payment of earned academic allowances as against N105million for non-teaching staff leading to protest by the non-teaching staff and shutting down of administrative activities.
The Council resolved that appropriate sanctions will be applied on staff who infringe on the extant guidelines and rules of the University, in respect of harassment of people and locking of gates during protests and strikes.
