Following the alleged non-implementation of the National minimum wage across federal universities in the country.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, have begun mobilisation of it’s workers for a possible industrial action.
The strike will be over the non implementation of the new national minimum wage in the universities despite Presidential directive that it be implemented by December 31, 2019.
A highly placed source close to ASUU said that the university workers are not happy they are yet to enjoy the minimum wage.
The source said;
Staff of all federal Universities across the country are yet to receive the new minimum wage. We are aware that others workers have been paid
When asked if it was only the Academic staff that have not been paid, he said none of the workers in the universities have been paid the minimum wage.
A lecturer in one of the federal universities in the north told The Nation that they also not been told why they have not been paid the minimum wage.
We have not been paid and we don’t know why. If they say it is because of IPPIS, what about other university workers that have enrolled on the scheme already. Why have they not been paid.
We are holding meetings regarding the issue already and discussing the next step to take. Tell them to pay us our minimum wage because we go on strike again now, Nigerians will be shouting.
Though the President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Prof. Biodun Ogunyumi could not be reached for his comment as he did not answer calls put through to his phone
