ASUU Strike: No work, no pay – FG to ASUU



ASUU Strike: No work, no pay - FG to ASUU

After weeks of ongoing indefinite strike action by ASUU, and several futile attempts made by the union and the Nigerian Government(FG) to come to an agreement, the Federal Government has come to a conclusion that henceforth, the salaries of these protesting lecturers be withheld till further notice until they go back to their various classrooms.

The FG sent the memo of the “No work, No pay” rule to all University Vice Chancellors through the National Universities Commission (NUC) to withhold with immediate effect the salaries of the lecturers and that failure to abide by this instruction would be seen and taken as a violation of extant rules and government’s directives.

The memo passed reads, “In view of the current Industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Federal Government has directed that there shall be no payment of any form of salaries and allowances to the staff on strike in federal and inter-varsity centres.

“Consequently, I am to direct vice-chancellors to apply the “No-work-no-pay” rule. However, universities and inter-varsity centres are to pay salaries and allowances to non-teaching staff. All Vice-Chancellors and Directors of Centers should note that the salaries to staff on strike from whatever source of funds shall be viewed as violation of extant rules and directive of the Federal Government of Nigeria”

I am deeply worried about ASUU strike — Atiku says




The people Democratic Party(PDP) Presidential candidate-  Atiku Abubakar, says he  has become  worried about the lingering ASUU strike, saying that the strike can affect the future of Nigerian undergraduates.

This was revealed by the spokesperson of his campaign council- Kola ologbondiyan.

The presidential candidate offered hope to the striking lecturers saying that measures have been put in place to tackle labour related issues and prevent incessant strike if elected president.

This was his statement:

“Knowing the importance of education and youth development to national cohesion, stability, development and economic prosperity, Abubakar has already articulated a clear and practical roadmap towards resolving all issues hampering education in Nigeria in his policy document.”

“Our candidate has made ample provisions for enhanced welfare packages, research grants, better teaching and learning environment as well as a strong synergy between the union and government towards a harmonious working environment.

“The PPCO therefore urges Nigerians not to despair but to continue to rally behind Atiku Abubakar in the all-important mission of rescuing our nation,’’ he said.

We never arrested Atiku’s son, it was orji’s son – EFCC says




The Economic and financial crimes commission, EFCC has denied allegations of apprehending former vice president, atiku abubakar’s son.

The financial crimes agency reacted to a previous publication where it was reported that they invaded the apartment of the two sons of the presidential candidate under the People Democratic Party(PDP) -Atiku Abubakar, saying they only arrested the son of the former Abia state governor, Ogbonna Orji who resides in the same building housing the apartment occupied by the younger Atikus.

This was the statement made by the EFCC:

We have received several calls and email messages asking us to confirm the arrest of the sons of the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as being alleged in some quarters. Some only said we raided the apartments of Atiku’s son’s looking for foreign currencies. This is nothing but another tales by moonlight.”

It is in the news that we have been investigating the former Abia governor, Senator Theodore Orji over alleged N27 Billion Naira money laundering. In the course of investigation, we discovered that he laundered part of the money through his sons. We have been on the trail of some of the purchases made by his son including the cars the boys allegedly bought.

Last Friday, we traced one of the cars to a Nite Club in Abuja. In order not to cause panic, we waited until the business of the club was over and when the owner of the suspected car came to enter to take off, we arrested him and his friend who has a similar brand of car. That was about 5am on Saturday, December 8, 2018.

The two boys we arrested were Ogbonna Orji, 32, and Kelvin Ilonah. While Orji’s Car, a Range Rover is valued at about N100 million, Ilonah’s car also a Range Rover, is valued at about N35 Million.”

In the course of further interrogation, the two boys led us to their apartment, three flats, and documents retrieved from the apartment showed it was rented for N13 million each per annum,” the agency said.

Another brand new Prado Jeep, a 2017 model was recovered from the boys in the compound. The two boys in question gave useful information to the Commission which is helping in our further investigation.

The EFCC, as a responsible organisation is abreast of the establishment mandate and we shall not deviate from such mandate.
