Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan (UI) chapter, on Monday protested against the half salary paid to them in October by the Federal Government.
The lecturers held banners with various inscriptions such as: ‘Implementation of Collectively Bargained Memorandum of Agreement and Memorandum of Understanding,’ ‘Deployment of University Transparency Accountability Solution,’ ‘Immediate Release of Visitation Panel Reports,’ ‘Immediate Payment of Earned Academic Allowance,’ ‘Reinstatement of All Victimised Academics across Nigerian Universities,’ ‘No to Poor Living,’ ‘Review the Minimum Wage No’ among others.
The lecturers moved round the campus to the institution’s main gate, singing solidarity songs.
ASUU chapters across campuses in the country have been protesting the ‘No work No pay’ policy slammed on its members by the Federal Government and the pro-rata payment of their October salaries, saying lecturers should not be reduced to casual workers.
But the FG has insisted that it cannot pay for a work not done.
