Adamu Adamu

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members will not be paid for work that has not been completed, according to the Federal Government.

Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, refuted claims that the federal government was seeking to treat academics like casual workers by paying them on a pro rata basis on Wednesday at the state house in Abuja.
