FG paid what is due to ASUU members says Minister on Half Salary

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has continued to demonstrate against the Federal Government's partial payment of salary in October, but the Federal Government has maintained its stance that lecturers will not be compensated for time not spent working.

After today's Federal Executive Council meeting at the State House in Abuja, which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made this statement.

The minister responded to claims made by Prof. Emmanuel Osodoke, National President of ASUU, that the part payment was just a ploy to casualize lecturers in the university system. The minister said the government had no such plans.

"The government has given them what they are owed, and the strike has been called off. I believe that is the government's stance—that it will not compensate anyone for labor that was not performed and that was limited to the days for which they were paid, according to Adamu.

"How is it possible to hire a university lecturer on a temporary basis? Making a university lecturer a casual employee is not conceivable."
