President Muhammadu Buhari has insisted that members of the Association of Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will get salaries.

He stated this on Thursday in his annual speech to the joint session of the two Chambers of the National Assembly which is currently ongoing.

In the highlight of the 2021 Appropriation budget being presented to the National Assembly, he explained that all sectors of the economy would get attention in 2021 budget allocation, but reiterated the Federal Government’s position on payment of salaries of University lecturers, saying that those lecturers who were captured in the IPPIS will continue to draw their salaries without any hitch.

He advised the leadership of ASUU to understand the position of government, which he believes would remove fraud from the educational institutions.

President Buhari earlier arrived the National Assembly at about 11.00am and was received by the joint session of the two legislative Chambers.

  1. ASUU as an employees of the government cannot keep dictating to its employer how they want their salaries to be paid. Government is looking for every way possible to curb or minimize corruption, frauds and payment of ghost workers. If ASUU feels dissatisfied with this govt plan, they should sit down and come out with their own salary structure plan that is workable, beneficial and would be acceptable by both parties.
