The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has said it will declare a lecture-free day across tertiary institutions in the country, as a way of protesting against the withholding of their salaries and the half-pay they received for the month of October.
The chairman of the University of Ilorin chapter of ASUU, Moyosore Ajao who spoke on the planned lecture-free day, said it won’t be on the same day for all institutions.
ASUU embarked on strike in February 2022, which was later suspended following a court order in October 2022. Upon resumption, the government insisted on not paying for the period for which the strike lasted and only paid the lecturers for the number of days they worked in October.
