Concern as ASUU Lecturers Receive Half Salaries for October
By Kaosara Olayemi Oladimeji
The Federal Government only paid lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU for 18 working days in the month of October.
One of the affected lecturers who crave anonymity said Federal Government only paid half salaries to lecturers and senior members of ASUU.
Recall ASUU called off its eight-month-old strike on October 14, 2022. Lecturers were encouraged to resume back to work by the union on that same day.
According to a report by The Punch, 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.”
