BSU to pay earned al­lowances with IGR

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

The Benue State Univer­sity (BSU) in Makurdi will hence­forth use its in­ter­nally gen­er­ated rev­enue (IGR) to pay earned aca­demic al­lowances to lec­tur­ers.

The in­sti­tu­tion’s chap­ter of the Aca­demic Staff Union of Univer­si­ties (ASUU) had em­barked on a strike of nearly three months, de­mand­ing aca­demic earned al­lowance, among other things.

The school was re­opened just two weeks ago af­ter the gov­ern­ment met most of those de­mands with a pledge to clear out­stand­ing re­quests soon.

Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Or­tom who handed the di­rec­tive on earned al­lowances be­ing tied to IGR gen­er­a­tion, also or­dered a staff au­dit to de­ter­mine the univer­sity’s work­force and ac­tual wage bill to check fraud and en­sure pru­dence in the man­age­ment of re­sources.
