ASUU has answered to the national government’s statement that it wouldn’t pay its individuals’ compensations for the time of its modern activity
The association talked through its Lagos state section director, Adelaja Odukoya, who was in uncertainty assuming that the public authority have the information on how the university system functions
Odukoya noticed that for more than a half year at this point, the university instructors have not been paid they have not passed on, and they won’t bite the dust if the government keeps on keeping their salaries
Yaba, Lagos – The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it appears the federal government is confused about how the university system works and that the union will not be bothered by the decision to invoke the ‘no-work, no-pay’ policy by the government.
The union stated this on Thursday, August 18, while reacting to the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, statement that the withheld salaries of the lecturers would not be paid to serve as a deterrent to any worker planning to go on strike in the future, Vanguard reported.
The union, which spoke through its Lagos state chapter chairman, Adelaja Odukoya, said the claim that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) developed by the union to replace the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, IPPIS, did not pass the integrity test, was far from the truth.
Odukoya, a member of the national executive council (NEC) of ASUU, said:
“If they have not paid us for six months and we did not die, we cannot die now.
“But they must be told that they are going to pay us our salaries, that is sure. The job of a lecturer involves teaching, research and community development and if we are not in class now, we are doing those other things.”
