The Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) might be considering another strike action after the Federal Government paid lecturers for only half month in October.

The University of Lagos ASUU Chapter confirmed the development via its twitter page as it called the government vicious reckless and inhuman for the action.

The chapter urged members to be calm as the national body was deliberating on the next course of action over the government’s  payment.

The statement reads:

PAYMENT OF AMPUTATED AND CRIPPLED OCTOBER SALARY
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 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
‘Dele ASHIRU
Chairman,
ASUU-UNILAG

Recall, ASUU Called off their eight month strike on October 13th after negotiations between the government and the Union following intercession by the House of Representatives speaker Femi Gbajabiamila.

Meanwhile the Gombe state University ASUU Chapter has threatened to withhold student results amongst other things over their withheld salaries.

A statement from the university reads:

CONGRESS RESOLUTION ON THE NON-RELEASE OF THE WITHHELD SALARIES
‘The Congress of the Aendemic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Gombe State University branch at its meeting held today, Wednesday 2nd November, 2022 received the report of the engagements between the branch’s leadership and the University administration over the release of the withheld salaries. After exhaustive deliberations, the Congress therefore, resolved that given the University administration’s refusal to release the August and September salaries, members shall;
NOT SUBMIT THE RESULTS OF THE FIRST SEMESTER EXAMINATION FOR THE 2021/2022 SESSION,

(il) NOT CONTINUE WITH THE SUPERVISION OF BOTH UNDERGRADUATE AND POSTGRADNATE PROJECTS


ALLOCATED PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE STRIKE ACTION.
