Half Salary: Lecturers not casual workers – ASUU


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has flayed the federal government for paying half salaries to lecturers in October.

The federal government had explained that the lecturers were paid based on the days they worked in the stated month.

But in response on Tuesday, ASUU president, Emmanuel Osodeke, made it clear that its members are not casual workers and should not be treated as such.

In a statement, Osodeke said the union’s national executive committee (NEC) “noted with dismay that paying academics on a ‘pro-rata’ basis, like casual workers, is unprecedented in the history of university-oriented labour relations and therefore condemned this attempt to reduce Nigerian scholars to casual workers in its entirety.”
