ASUU CRITICIZES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER PAYMENT OF HALF SALARIES TO LECTURERS.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has slammed the Federal Government over the payment of half salaries to lecturers in October.

In a statement by ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, the Union  condemned the Pro- rata payment to its members and accused the government of an attempt to reduce Nigerian Scholars to casual workers.

 Prof Osodeke said in the statement, that the action of the Union was a display of manifest trust in the judiciary and other institutions and organs of government to always put national interest above all other considerations.

He said, they believe, as a Union of Thinkers, intellectuals, and patriots, ASUU will not only aid the process of amicable resolution of the crisis, but will also set the tone for smooth industrial relations between government  and Nigerian workers at large.

The ASUU Boss, however, said the response of the government, especially its pro-rata payment of October Salaries of academics, portrayed them as daily paid workers.

It would be recalled that ASUU had on October 14, 2022, called off its eight Month strike after the national Industrial Court ordered the lecturers to resume.
