According to a statement released by Ekerete Udoh, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Umo Eno, the resolution came after the governor engaged in discussions with a spectrum of labor leaders representing the Akwa Ibom State University.

The discussions primarily revolved around resolving various challenges confronting the university community.

Key among the commitments made by Governor Eno was the assurance to settle the 13th month salary bonus owed to university staff, provide a three-month palliative, and initiate the construction of critical roads within the main campus situated at Ikot Akpaden.
