ASUU threatens to embark on industrial strike if their salaries are not paid

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has threatened to embark on an industrial action if the 13 months’ salaries of over 1,000 of its members across the country were not paid.
Dr. Lazarus Maigoro, Chairman, University of Jos chapter of the union, who stated this in a statement on Saturday, in Jos, added that the Federal Government had also withheld the check-off dues of the affected members.
He accused Ahmed Idris, the Accountant General of Federation (AGF), of systematically denying the lecturers their remuneration, even after the government and the union had reached an agreement on non-victimization of its members following their last strike.
The chairman alleged that the affected members were being threatened to either enroll in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) platform or have their salaries withheld.
