Strong indications have emerged that workers of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, may soon close down the institution over unpaid allowance.
The workers, under the aegis of Non Academic Staff Union, OAU chapter, had started their protest with a warning strike penultimate Wednesday, alleging that they had not been paid their hazard allowances for 64 months.
The aggrieved workers had shut the school gate and other facilities, including the university senate building and library.
The Chairman of the NASU, OAU Chapter, Comrade Wole Odewunmi, on Saturday insisted that if the protest did not yield the desired result, the workers would embark on a strike.
“For the past 64 months, we are owed hazard allowance and we have had several meetings that yielded no results. The two parties — government and management- keep pushing blames on one another.
