FG Starts Paying ASUU’s Withheld Salaries—BREAKING News

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members’ paychecks that were earlier withheld are now being disbursed by President Bola Tinubu’s administration.
On Monday, February 19, journalists in Abuja received confirmation of the occurrence from sources with access to the information.
Speaking to The PUNCH in Abuja earlier today, Prof. Gbolahan Bolarin, the chairwoman of ASUU at the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, stated, “Yes, that is true.” The money has begun to come in.

It is worth noting that President Tinubu authorized the release of ASUU employees’ four months’ worth of arrears in October 2023. The “No Work, No Pay policy” put in place by the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari was the reason the paychecks had been withheld.

in reaction to an eight-month-long strike in 2022.

Tahir Mamman, the minister of education, recently declared that the government had raised university employees’ pay by thirty-five percent. Furthermore, by removing the universities from the Integrated Payment and Payroll Information System, the government has given them more autonomy.

As a result, the universities can now hire and fill positions without needing a waiver.

According to Minister Mamman, these choices were taken following informal discussions with the unions that represent the postsecondary educational institutions.
