Weekly Trust - - News - Hope Abah Em­manuel, Makurdi

Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Or­tom on Fri­day, or­dered the Benue State Univer­sity (BSU) man­age­ment to im­me­di­ately pay the new lec­tur­ers em­ployed by the in­sti­tu­tion who are be­ing owed salaries. Our cor­re­spon­dent re­ports that the new staff of the in­sti­tu­tion were em­ployed in Novem­ber, 2019 but haven’t been paid any salary till date.

The in­sti­tu­tion had var­i­ously posited that the is­sue was be­ing tackled af­ter some of the newly em­ployed cried out over their hard­ship as a re­sult of the de­vel­op­ment.

How­ever, gov­er­nor Or­tom, while di­rect­ing pay­ments for the af­fected staff, said the ap­proval given to the BSU man­age­ment was based on its re­quest to only re­place aca­demic staff who had re­tired.

A state­ment by the Gov­er­nor’s Spokesper­son, Terver Akase, stressed that the monthly sub­ven­tion the univer­sity re­ceives from the State Gov­ern­ment has not re­duced and salaries of the new staff were fac­tored in the al­lo­ca­tions, adding that there is no rea­son for non-pay­ment of the af­fected lec­tur­ers.
