Written by Morenike Adebayo on March 22, 2016
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has expressed concern over the continuous release of incomplete salaries to public universities.
The Yola zone of the union, which comprised Adamawa State University, Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Taraba State University, University of Maiduguri and Yobe State University, raised the concern in a statement today in Yola.
The statement read by the leader of the zone, Dr Musa Abdullahi, said that the development had made it impossible for some universities to pay salaries. It added that the development will compel universities to resort to commercial ventures to augment shortfall thereby commercializing university education.
While announcing the union resolved to quit contributory pension scheme, Abdullahi said that ASUU plans to establish its own pension company to be known as Nigerian Universities Pension Company (NUPENCO).
