The lead counsel to Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Human Rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN), has asked the Federal Government to stop provoking members of the ASUU in the dispute over wages.
Falana disclosed this while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today, on Tuesday.
He said the lecturers should be paid their full salaries for the months they were on strike.
CEOAFRICA had reported that the Federal Government had paid half-salaries for the month of October to the ASUU members.
The Federal Government in its defence said the lecturers were paid based on the days they worked in the stated month.
Falana noted that; “The doctrine of ‘no work, no pay’ is totally inapplicable to ASUU members.’’
“We are asking all Nigerians who mounted pressure on ASUU to call off the strike . . . all of us have a duty to prevail on the government to stop provoking the lecturers.”
