The Academic Staff Union of Universities has criticised the payment of partial salaries for the month of October 2022.
Many academics have reported to have received only part salaries. This report came to light on Thursday. The members of staff complained that it was not clear if it was a coordinated action from the Federal Government.
We recall that ASUU had been on strike for over eight months this year which was called off on the 14th of October 2022 in respect to the order of the Appeal Court.
They had been demanding for improved welfare, among many other concerns which even at the order of the court, they cried their demands had not yet been met.
In a statement on Thursday by the Chairman of the ASUU – University of Lagos, Dele Ashiru, he described the October salaries as “amputated and crippled” payments.
“It is to say the least insensitive and disheartening that a supposedly democratic government can be so vicious, reckless and inhuman in dealing with the best brains in our society,” the statement said.
“The leadership of the Union at the National level has been duly informed about this unfortunate development and they are on top of the issue.
“Members are please enjoined to remain calm and await further directives from the National Secretariat even in the face of this bracing provocation and crass wickedness by this administration.
“Please remain strong and undaunted because, a people united, can never be defeated.
“We shall overcome.” He said.
