The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said the Federal Government (FG) is yet to review its members’ salaries for the past 13 years, after the 2009 agreement.
Chairperson of the ASUU, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi Chapter, Dr. Ibrahim Ibrahim Inuwa, yesterday, said the unfulfilled 2009 agreement that was reached by the government, provided that lecturers’ salaries should be reviewed every three years, in accordance with economic reality and current dollar exchange rate.
Inuwa said 13 years ago, the government only released N200b, during Goodluck Jonathan’s administration from the Renegotiation of 2009 Agreement.
He said the government has only been releasing “amount that is not above N50b” which, he said, many varieties were unable to benefit from.
“Some issues on the table include the renegotiation agreement of 2009; revitalisation fund; forceful enrolment into Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) and proliferation of universities, among others.
