He recently revealed this during an interactive media programme titled; “The Governor Speaks’’, in Uyo, the state capital, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, going by the figures he has across Nigerian universities, AKSU lecturers receive the highest salaries anywhere in the country as at now.
Udom added that he simply decided to align with the National Universities Commission’s (NUC) salary scale applicable everywhere in the country, and that has been causing several disagreements in the state.
His words, “I give Akwa Ibom State University N327 million every month as grant. Also, going by the figures I have, lecturers in AKSU receive the highest salaries anywhere in the country.”
“For sustainability, I decided that we align with the National Universities Commission’s (NUC) salary scale applicable everywhere in the country, that is the crux of the disagreement.”
“I am optimistic these issues will be resolved, I have set up a panel of enquiry to that effect.”
“We are spending huge amount of money in providing infrastructure in AKSU.”
“Look at the Obio Akpa campus, when we came in, we had to put in money, and today, if you go there, you will see the difference.”
“Even the main campus, the internal roads, right from the gate.”
