Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) have received full salaries for the month of November 2022.
However, the eight-month arrears remained withheld by the Federal Government.
A senior member of the union at the Bayero University, Kano, disclosed this in an interview with The PUNCH, on Wednesday.
“Some of our members have started receiving salaries and I can confirm to you that we received our full salaries for the month of November. However, the arrears are still withheld,” the ASUU member said.
Recall that Federal Government refused to pay the striking lecturers for the eight months which the union was on strike.
The lecturers, in October 2022, were also paid pro-rata (half-pay), according to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
Lecturers across the country have been protesting against the Federal Government’a action.
The National Executive Council of the union is expected to hold a crucial meeting in the coming days over the withheld salaries.
