The ASUU has urged President Bola Tinubu to pay the eight months withheld salaries of its members due to the 2022 strike action, citing government’s failure to honor agreements they have with the union.

The academic union expressed their concerns over the delayed release of nearly eight months’ salaries of university academics due to the 2022 patriotic strike action and the government’s failure to implement the 2020 Memorandum of Action.

According to the ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, in his statement on Thursday, there is no justification for the non-release of the withheld salaries.

Osodeke argued that the “No-Work-No-Pay” policy against academics failed to consider that only the teaching component of their work was affected during the strike action.

Moreover, ASUU discussed issues with the Nigerian University System at its NEC meeting, and the lecturers argue the move violates existing university laws and calls for council reinstatement for smooth university operations.
