BREAKING: ASUU receives full salaries for November, arrears withheld

Lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities have received full salaries for the month of November 2022.

 

According to Punch the eight month arrears remained withheld by the Federal Government.

A senior member of the union at the Bayero University Kano made this known in an interview with our corespondent in Abuja on Wednesday.

“Some of our members have started receiving salaries and I can confirm to you that we received our full salaries for the month of November. However, the arrears are still withheld.”

The Federal Government refused to pay the striking lecturers for the eight months which the union embarked on strike.

The lecturers, in October 2022 were also paid pro-rata (half-pay) according to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.

The PUNCH had  gathered that the lecturers were paid only 18 working days in the month of October a senior member of ASUU who spoke to our correspondent under strict confidence noted.

Speaking with our correspondent, he said, “We were only paid for the days after the strike. I received half salary. Other members are angry right now, they are blaming the NEC for calling off the strike.”

Lecturers across the country have been protesting against this decision by the Federal Government.

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.

The National Executive Council of the union is expected to hold a crucial meeting in the coming days over the withheld salaries.
