ASUU Fingers Ngige In Half-Salary Payment To Members As Union Begins Nationwide Protests
Written by Joseph Emeribe on November 16, 2022
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has accused the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, for personally directing the stoppage of their salaries in the name of ‘no-work, no-pay’ policy.
The national president of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, who spoke on Tuesday on Channels Television’s current affairs programme, ‘Politics Today’, which was monitored by LEADERSHIP, also lamented that the Minister has converted the struggle into a personal fight with the Union.
Recall that ASUU had a few weeks ago raised the alarm that the Federal Government had turned the university lecturers to casual workers by paying them half-salaries for the month of October.
Speaking further, Osodeke it’s so sad that Nigeria has such a person (Ngige) as a Minister, saying that if government tries to casualise University lecturers, then it will kill the system.
