OAU Shut Over Workers’ Protest Concerning Non-Payment of “Hazard Allowances”




Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has been shut temporarily due to workers’ protests over non-payment of hazard allowances for 64 months.

The closure was announced on Sunday after an emergency senate meeting, Punch reports.

Students have been advised to vacate the premises.

However, some school authorities told newsmen that the closure has nothing to do with the protests, and that it was just a ‘mid-semester break.’

Upon further investigation, newsmen are said to have discovered that there has never been such ‘mid-semester break’ throughout the history of the university’s existence.

    64 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My God! the sheer scale. Wow! our country ladies and gentlemen. What about TETFUND and all the other allocations our rulers have been making noise about???

    We have managed to create teachers who don’t find joy in teaching, this strike only affects the students!, hope it doesn’t snowball.

      Their normal salaries are being paid. What is the meaning of hazard allowance? It’s students who suffer

    All these workers suffering. Wow! Nigeria needs to improve its conditions for workers. I mean who would like to work in a job where there’s no satisfaction, continuous unpaid wages, no respect, no welfare protection. If we can’t sort out our working conditions ASAP in ALL sectors poverty and underdevelopment is going to persist.
