The ultimatum, Latest Nigeria newspaper meeting, began on Wednesday today and ends on Friday, November 15, 2019. The union said it could resort to strike at the expiration of the ultimatum.

It was deduced that the academic staff of the University is owed a salary of eleven months.

But, the president of the Union, Biodun Olaniran, and the secretary Toyin Abegunrin in a congressional resolution made available to Latest Nigeria newspaper threatened to retain the results of the semester of the 2018/2019 academic session until wages are paid.
