The Guardian gathered that the withdrawal of services by the academic staff of the university was not unconnected with unpaid entitlements on the part of the university management throughout the tenure of the current administration of the university, which would end in December 2024.

This decision was taken at a congress on June 14, 2024, which resolved that all members of ASUU, UNIBEN, withdraw their involvement/participation in the postgraduate programme of the University of Benin with immediate effect.

Investigation by The Guardian revealed that the academic union vowed to sustain the strike action on all postgraduate programmes of the university to press home its demand for payment of all outstanding entitlements.

It was further gathered that the suspension of services by the lecturers, among others, is to compel the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Lilian Salami, to do the needful to forestall another incidence of interruption in the postgraduate programme, which may arise from accumulation of unpaid entitlements to members in the near or distant future.
