The Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government has reportedly paid lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) their full salaries for the month of November 2022.
It was however gathered that the eight month arrears remained withheld by the Federal Government.
A senior member of the union at the Bayero University Kano confirmed this to The PUNCH in Abuja on Wednesday.
“Some of our members have started receiving salaries and I can confirm to you that we received our full salaries for the month of November. However, the arrears are still withheld,” he said.
CityNews reports that the Buhari administration had refused to pay the striking lecturers for the eight months which the union embarked on strike.
The lecturers, in October 2022 were also paid pro-rata (half-pay) according to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
Lecturers across the country have been protesting against this decision by the Federal Government.
