STRIKE: FG Moves To End ASUU, ASUP Strikes, Begins Arrears Payment.

The Federal Government has commenced the payment of minimum wage arrears, which it owed lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities and Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics as part of efforts to end ongoing strikes by the unions.


The National President of ASUP, Dr. Anderson Ezeibe, and the Chairman, ASUU FUTMinna, Dr. Gbolahan Bolarin, confirmed this in separate interviews with News men in Abuja on Thursday.


Confirming the payment on Thursday, Ezeibe, however, said that was just the beginning.


He said, “The government has started responding. They just started paying the salary/minimum wage arrears, the one they have refused to pay.


“However, that is just one of the demands, so we have not reached anywhere. They have not attended to the others, but I can confirm that people have started receiving alerts of the arrears owed.”
