The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Thursday said it would not call off its strike until the salary arrears of its members were paid.

The university lecturers also said they would not teach students to make up for the six months they had been on strike if the Federal Government failed to pay for the “period of strike.”

The union’s national president, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this to The PUNCH in response to a statement by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, that the Federal Government would not concede to ASUU’s demands for the backlog of salaries withheld within the period.

The PUNCH reports that ASUU embarked on a one-month warning strike on February 14. However, the union has extended the strike several times in the past six months.

Adamu had told State House correspondents on Thursday that the government would not pay the lecturers for the period of strike.
