ASUU strike: FG enforces no-work-no-pay on lecturers

The Federal Government has directed Vice Chancellors of the striking public universities and inter-varsity centers, to enforce no-work-no-pay rule on striking lecturers.

This is following the deadlocks that have trailed attempts, to end the ongoing strike by lecturers across all Federal Government owned universities in the country.

This directive was said to have been communicated to the universities in a memo sent by the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) through the University Vice Chancellors.

The Memo which was signed by Director, Research, Information and Technology, NUC, Dr S.B Ramon-Yusuf, stated that payment of salaries from any other sources will be viewed as violation of extant rules and Government directive.

It reads in parts, “In view of the current Industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the federal government has directed that there shall be no payment of any form of salaries and allowances to the staff on strike in federal and inter-varsity centers

“Consequently, I am to direct Vice-Chancellors to apply the ‘No-work-no-pay’ rule.

“However, Universities and inter-varsity centers are to pay salaries and allowances to Non-teaching staff. All Vice Chancellors and Directors of centers should note that the salaries to staff on strike from whatever source of funds shall be viewed as violation of extant rules and directive of the federal government of Nigeria”
