ASUU receives half salary for October from the FG
According to The PUNCH, the Federal Government only paid lecturers under the purview of the Academic Staff Union of Universities for 18 working days in October.
Lecturers and senior ASUU members who spoke to our correspondent in strict confidence stated that the government only paid half of their salaries.
It was previously reported that ASUU ended its eight-month strike on October 14, 2022. The union encouraged lecturers to return to work on the same day.
Speaking with our correspondent, a senior member of the National Executive Council, said, “We were only paid for the days after the strike. I received a half salary. Other members are angry right now, they are blaming the NEC for calling off the strike.”
Another member, who confirmed the development, said, “Yes, it is true, I received half salary. It seems the government is set to kill unionism in the country but we are ready for them.
