ASUU: FG sets up committee to review ‘No Work, No Pay’ rule


 THE Federal Government might decide to compensate the university instructors who have been on strike for the previous seven months while staying at home.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, may extend its strike in spite of appeals from students, parents, and worried Nigerians if the government decides to review some of the difficult decisions it has made that have been challenged by the ASUU.

In a meeting with university provosts and vice chancellors on Tuesday, the government formed a 14-member committee, among other things, to review its decision not to pay the striking lecturers for the time they were at home and other contentious issues.

The Federal Ministry of Education‘s Mr. Bem Goong, Director of Press and Public Relations, who briefed reporters on the decisions made at the meeting, stated that the committee will also look at other contentious areas of the renegotiation with ASUU.

However, according to Goong, the problem of UTAS, the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, which serves as the platform for paying university instructors, was not covered at the meeting and will not be addressed by the 14-member committee.

Mr. Goong, who did not specify how long the committee has to complete its work, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari would receive the committee’s findings soon for his consideration.
