The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is set to embark on a one-day nationwide protest rally over the implementation by the Federal Government of a “no-work, no-pay” policy for lecturers in Nigeria.
This online news platform understands that ASUU Nationwide Protest will be organised at the branch level of the union across public university campuses nationwide and it will take place as a free-lecture day for all lecturers who are members.
The chairman of ASUU, University of Lagos (UNILAG) branch, Dr. Dele Ashiru, confirmed this to Nigerian Tribune, on Sunday, November 13, 2022.
According to him, every university where ASUU has members has been directed to choose a day within the week to hold a special congress and also go on protest rally within their campuses.
The chairman of ASUU, University of Lagos (UNILAG) branch said UNILAG-ASUU had fixed Tuesday, November 15, for its own rally.
Ashiru said the aim of the protest rally is simply to draw the attention of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to ASUU’s strong dissatisfaction of the Federal Government’s attempt at casualisation of the academics in the country by using ‘no-work, no-pay policy’ to remunerate them.
The UNILAG ASUU Chairman insisted that university lecturers are intellectuals and professionals and cannot, therefore, be treated like casual workers.
