“Yes, I only received 18 working days salary, that’s what they paid me,” he said.

Recall that ASUU had called off its eight-month-old strike on October 14, 2022, after the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

Moreso, most universities only announced resumption a week after the strike was called off.

ASUU has been clamouring for the salary arrears of the eight month period that they spent on strike but the FG is yet to yield to their demands.
