Half-salaries: ASUU seeks Nigerians’ cooperation, legal solutions
The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Tuesday asked for the cooperation of Nigerians as it “continues to pursue positive resolution of this avoidable crisis within the ambit of legality without compromising the interests and welfare of Nigerian intellectuals.”
The union made this known in a statement made available to our correspondent in Abuja.
MOUTHPIECE NGR reports that the union had an overnight National Executive Council meeting in Abuja following the payment of half salaries to members of the union.
“The Academic Staff Union of Universities suspended its eight-month strike on 14th October 2022, in obedience to the order of the National Industrial Court and in further consideration of intervention efforts of well-meaning Nigerians, including the Honourable Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.
The action of the Union was a display of manifest trust in the judiciary and other institutions and organs of government to always put national interest above all other considerations.
