PREMIUM TIMES assembled on Friday that the mandate to actualize the “no work, no compensation” arrangement was imparted to the colleges in an update sent by the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) to college bad habit chancellors.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had on November 4 pronounced inconclusive, across the country strike over non-usage of past understandings by the central government and interest for expanded college financing.
Something like two gatherings have been held between the instructors and the legislature since the strike started. In any case, the two gatherings are yet to achieve an understanding.
In the notice marked by NUC Director of Research, Information and Technology S.B Ramon-Yusuf, the college controller expressed that installment of pay rates from some other sources however government subsidizing will be seen as infringement of surviving guidelines and government mandate.
The reminder peruses,
“In perspective of the current Industrial activity by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the government has coordinated that there will be no installment of any type of compensations and stipends to the staff on strike in administrative and between varsity focuses.
“Subsequently, I am to guide Vice-Chancellors to apply the “No-work-no-pay” rule. Be that as it may, Universities and between varsity focuses are to pay rates and recompenses to Non-educating staff.
“All Vice Chancellors and Directors of focuses should take note of that the compensations to staff on strike from whatever wellspring of assets will be seen as infringement of surviving standards and order of the national legislature of Nigeria.”
In a response to the notice, the Chairman of University of Ibadan section of ASUU, Deji Omole, portrayed the central government as improper for owing speakers seven years of unpaid, earned scholarly recompenses. He said in spite of the obligation, the administration still needs teachers to keep on working while the administration and the National Assembly ‘feed fat’ on the abundance of the country.
Mr Omole in an announcement made accessible to PREMIUM TIMES Friday evening said it is tragic that an administration that prides itself as having trustworthiness has demonstrated it needs uprightness by neglecting to respect understandings came to with the association. He said the administration has come about to badgering and terrorizing of ASUU individuals on an enthusiastic battle to spare state funded training in Nigeria.
He said the “no work, no compensation” mandate won’t prevent the instructors.
“We have passed this street previously. It is a well-known landscape which we can explore with our eyes shut.
“We will triumph any endeavor to devastate the regular patrimony. The intensity of the general population is more grounded than the general population in power, ” the speaker said.
