ASUU President Seeks Proper Remuneration Of Workers

The President, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr Nasir Fagge, on Monday in Abuja called for appropriate remuneration of Nigeria’s workforce to bolster the morale of workers.

asuu2Fagge made the call at a two-day stakeholders forum organise by National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC).

The forum was on the review of the existing job evaluation and grading system in the Nigerian public service.

Fagge said that productivity in Nigeria was low because “people who do not contribute to nation building earned the highest pay”.

He said that a lot of well-meaning Nigerians had failed to contribute immensely to building the nation due to the anomalies related to remuneration.

He advised the authorities to ensure that the recommendations arising from the forum were properly implemented.

“Productivity is not commensurate to remuneration in the country. There are a lot of people in Nigeria who do not contribute much to nation building but they earn the highest pay.

“The major issue behind Nigeria’s under-development is that we have not been doing what is right in the remuneration system.

In other nations remuneration is directly proportionate to productivity. “The earlier we make sure that productivity is remunerated accordingly the better for us,’’ Fagge said.
