The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU may yet, drag President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to court over its members’ eight months’ withheld salaries if the government goes ahead to pay members of the parallel union, the Congress of Nigerian University Academics.
Femi Falana, the union’s counsel disclosed this in an interview on Monday, January 16.
Before this announcement, the Nigerian Government on January 13, 2023, through the Director of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System Department, Mr. Charles Wali, had directed university lecturers under the Congress of University,
CONUA, to submit their details to the Office of the Accountant General of the
Federation for their withheld salaries to be paid.
Meanwhile, at the time of filing this report, the National President of ASUU, Prof
Emmanuel Osodeke, could not be reached for comments/remarks.
