Dr. John Edor who is the Chairman of the group (ASUU) in his statement, said that the only thing they were pleading for was for the payment of their arrears but the introduction of IPPIS by the federal government as a means of fighting corruption in the country, and global Covid-19 pandemic caused a lot of harm on them. He said that the lockdown prevented them to look for other means to get income for the substainance of themselves and their families. He therefore, urged the management of the university of Calabar to carry out immediate action on the matter before things will get out of hand.

Dr. John Edor said that, what they worked for (salary arrears and other entitlements) which is almost six years should be paid with immediate effect even if federal government did not consider it important to pay their salaries. He equally said that no money will be lost from the actual amount federal government is owning them even though it has compounded to a huge sum of money. He went further to say that the peaceful protest will only come to an end only if, everyone of them is fully paid his or her own salary arrears and other entitlements.
