Taraba government has made a rebuttal of claims that it does not owe workers salaries.

The Union said the strike action is hinged on the government’s failure to pay earned academic allowances, promotion arrears, fractional salaries to staff, and unsettled staff pension and gratuity scheme.

Mr Samuel Shitaa, who is also the Taraba State University ASUU Chairman, confirmed that other reasons for the industrial action include the institution’s non-implementation of agreements and perimeter fencing.
