ASUU warns of fresh strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Sunday blamed the Federal Government, as well as the Accountant General of the Federation, over what it called the victimisation of its members.

It said the Federal Government had  refused to pay its members salaries despite the ‘no victimisation clause’ of the suspended strike.

According to ASUU, while its members are back to their duty posts to work, the harsh economy being experienced due to unpaid salaries and non-refund of deducted check-off dues will affect productivity.

The Chairman of ASUU, University of Ibadan, Prof. Ayo Akinwole, said the Federal Government failed to remit the deductions it made to the account of the union.

The union warned that if  pushed to the limit, “withdrawal of work in the nearest future may be inevitable.”

Akinwole said while government was paying outstanding five months salaries for those on nominal role at an agonisingly slow pace, over 100 UI academic staff members were being owed salaries for between two to 10 months.

He said those newly employed in February 2020 had not received money with their families and dependents suffering over their rejection of enrolment on the IPPIS.
