Unpaid Salaries: UniAbuja Staff School Teacher Goes On Hunger Strike

A teacher with the University of Abuja Secondary School, Mr. Solo Anuli Obiagwu, has gone on hunger strike which has now lasted for five days over the plight of the school teachers.

According to Vanguard, Obiagwu, who claimed he was being owed for 11 months by the university, said teachers in the staff school have been subjected to serious emotional trauma so he protested “victimisation of secondary school teachers at the University of Abuja Secondary School.”

Also on the list of reasons are “impunity and insensitivity, emotional stabbing of teachers and students, silencing of unions and attempt by UniAbuja management to cripple me—11 months without salary.”

The teacher, who sat in a bush within the duration of the exercise, refused to talk to anybody as he placed a board by his side, listing reasons for his action. According to him, the hunger strike, 6a.m. to 4p.m. daily, began on November 13 and ended November 17.
