The Federal Government has insisted that university lecturers will not be paid for work not done in line with the ‘No work, no pay’ policy.
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, made this known during a briefing with State House correspondents in Abuja.
It could be recalled that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, which embarked on strike in February, called off the action in October following the directive of the Court of Appeal which ordered the lecturers back to work.
Following the calling off of the strike, the government paid the lecturers half salaries for the month of October, while insisting that it would not pay for the months the lecturers were on strike.
But the Minister of Education, on Wednesday, said the position of the Federal Government was that the lecturers “would not be paid for work not done.”
The minister also reacted to the allegation made by the President of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodoke, that paying the lecturers on pro-rata basis was a ploy to make them casual workers.
“Nobody can make university lecturers casual workers,” he said.
When told that the lecturers were threatening a one-day action to protest government’s action, Adamu said he was not aware. Punch
