NASU Chief Resigns Over NECO Management’s Refusal To Implement Allowance
Mohammed Sham-una Aliyu, Chairman of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) Branch of the National Examinations Council (NECO), has resigned from his position as a result of the NECO management’s failure to implement the payment of the new Duty Tour Allowance (DTA) approved by the Federal Government in February for staff who participated in the NECO exercise in November/December.
In a letter dated November 22, Aliyu stated that the failure to implement the new DTA is a disservice to the Council workers and that he is retiring in accordance with his morals and conscience.
“I said in one of my communications to the registrar, which was thankfully read out to everyone’s hearing yesterday that I believe a huge disservice would be done to the staff of the council, if the New DTA is not implemented as agreed by the November/December exercise. I stand by this statement and I believe a huge disservice has been done and someone has to take full responsibility for the failure to implement this as agreed and conveyed to the staff of the council for implementation by Nov/Dec 2022.
“Consequently, I Mohammed Sham-una Aliyu take full responsibility for this failure and effective immediately resign my position as the Chairman NASU NECO Branch. All I have is my name, my principles and my conscience. These are the things that help me sleep at night and I am sorry I cannot sign off on this disapproval and on a clean conscience look any NECO staff in the face and tell them that the reason they’re not getting their entitlements by right is that the council bought vehicles.
“I thank you all most sincerely for the opportunity to serve you and for tolerating my excesses and shortcomings over the period of my stewardship. I apologise most sincerely to the members of the executive and my closest friends and confidants for not giving them the opportunity to have an input in my decision,” the letter read.
Speaking in Minna, the ex-chairman confirmed that he had resigned, but stated that his resignation was still a process as the national headquarters of NASU would have a final say and that he was waiting to hear from them.
The Head of Information and Public Relations Division of NECO, Azeez Sani disclosed that on the resignation of the NASU chairman, he said he was not aware of the resignation.
