FG pays ASUU half salaries for October


Only 18 working days in the month of October were covered by the Federal Government's payment to lecturers who operate under the auspices of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

According to professors and senior ASUU members who spoke to reporters in strict confidence, the government only pays half salary.

Senior National Executive Council member who spoke to PUNCH claimed, "We were only paid for the days after the strike. I was given half of my salary. Currently, some members are furious and blaming the NEC for ending the strike.

"Yes, that is true, I earned half income," a another team member who confirmed the development said. Although it appears that the government is planning to do so, we are prepared for them.

It was learned that the decision was made based on the fact that the lecturers resumed work in the middle of October, despite the fact that the FG has yet to provide an explanation for why the half payment was made.

Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the national president of ASUU, verified the news to our correspondent and said, "Yes, that is true, and we are genuinely startled."

ASUU not happy, summons NEC meeting over half-salary

Following the Federal Government's decision to pay academics half salaries for the month of October 2022, the Academic Staff Union of Universities is planning to call an emergency meeting of the National Executive Council, according to information obtained by The PUNCH.

Although there isn't a set date just yet, it was heard that the decision to call a meeting came after the drama that broke out when union members received half salaries in their accounts.

On October 14, 2022, ASUU ended its eight-month strike, as reported by Strenuousblog. The union pushed lecturers to start working again on that day, read here.
