ASUU Awaits Buhari On No-Work-No-Pay, Holds NEC Meeting

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU is still awaiting the decision of the President Muhammadu Buhari, on the no-work-no-pay rule invoked by the Federal Government since its strike began eight months ago.

Report says the President’s decision on the matter is key to a decision the union will take on whether to call-off the strike or continue, as only the President can grant the waiver for the arrears of the striking lecturers to be paid.

Meanwhile, branches of ASUU are expected to begin consultations today over the possibility of calling off the strike.

It will be recalled that, Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige had dragged the striking lecturers before the National Industrial Court, NIC. The Court on September 21, ordered ASUU to call-off the strike. Similarly, the Court of Appeal also handed down a similar order last week.
