ASUU’s Half Salary: Union Set to Summon Emergency NEC Meeting
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on November 5, 2022
There are indications that the resumption of academic activities in the nation’s universities may be short-lived as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is set to summon an emergency meeting of its National Executive Council (NEC).
The decision to convene the meeting follows the alleged payment of half salaries by the Federal Government to the lecturers for the month of October 2022.
Meanwhile, no date has been fixed yet, but sources said that the decision to convene a meeting followed the surprise that greeted members of the union when some of them got an alert of half salaries in their accounts for the month of October 2022.
ASUU National President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, also confirmed the development in a recent interaction with journalists.
