ASUU: UI Chapter Protests Half-Pay, Demands FG Honours Agreements

The University of Ibadan branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is currently rallying on the campus in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The lecturers held banners with different inscriptions as they demanded; ‘Implementation of Collectively Bargained Memorandum of Agreement and Memorandum of Understanding,’ ‘Deployment of University Transparency Accountability Solution’, ‘Immediate Release of Visitation Panel Reports,’ Immediate Payment of Earned Academic Allowance,’ and ‘Reinstatement of All Victimised Academics across Nigerian Universities.’

The lecturers gathered on campus and marched to the institution’s main gate while giggling and chanting messages of solidarity.

They were supported by groups from the right and the civil society, including the Take It Back Movement in the state and the Joint Action Fronts’ Emiola Solomon and Abiodun Bamigboye.

ASUU branches on campuses all throughout the nation have been protesting the FG’s half-pay policy targeting lecturers since February, arguing that professors shouldn’t be treated like temporary workers. This is as the FG has said it cannot pay for work not done.
