ASUU mocks CONUA’s court threat regarding unpaid salaries, suggesting that a strike may soon resume.
Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), says that the Congress of Nigerian Academics (CONUA)’s threat to sue for unpaid salaries is not only “laughable,” but also inconsistent.
The ASUU President exclusively told ait.live that the current crop of lecturers in CONUA allowed themselves to be used by the government to criticize ASUU, forcing them to play along with ASUU’s demands for reviving tertiary education.
ASUU also stated that the strike is one of its options if the government continues to withhold salaries.
In October, the ASUU ended its eight-month strike after the National Industrial Court ordered it to return to the classroom.
Students, on the other hand, aren’t sure if the ASUU will go on strike again because of the government’s implementation of the “no work, no pay” policy. You may recall that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) staged a strike that lasted for nearly seven months.
