The Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) have been paid half salaries by the Federal Government, Switch Nigeria can confirm.
The payment was only for 18 days of the month of October.
Recall that ASUU called off their 8 months long strike on October 14.
According a senior member of the Union, “We were only paid for the days after the strike. I received a half salary. Other members are angry right now, they are blaming the NEC for calling off the strike.”
Another member, who confirmed the development to the Punch, said, “Yes, it is true, I received half salary. It seems the government is set to kill unionism in the country but we are ready for them.”
