ASUU Orders the Lecturers at the University of Jos to Stay at Home Until Withheld Salaries Are Paid.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities -ASUU, in the University of Jos chapter, Plateau State, has directed its members to stay at home until their withheld salaries are paid.

The directive was contained in a statement issued by the chairman of the ASUU chapter, Associate Professor Lazarus Maigoro after its emergency congress meeting on Friday, November 4.

The academic union has described the payment of 17 days of prorated October salary to its members on the directive of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige as a grave insult.

It can be recalled that the Federal government had on Thursday, paid half salaries to the striking university lecturers.

“In light of the bottleneck placed by Ngige towards paying our members the backlog of our salaries, the congress of ASUU, University of Jos have met today 4th November 2022, and resolved to stay at home, though not yet on strike, until the withheld salaries are paid,” the statement released had read.

The union explained that the strike was suspended primarily because of the court order that directed the ASUU members to resume work. And that one of the issues agreed upon at the meeting before the strike was suspended was that 50% of the eight months’ arrears of salaries would be paid to its members immediately, upon resumption.
