ASUU Members Protest in Ibadan, Calling the FG “Lawless, Merciless”


On Monday, protesters from the University of Ibadan (UI) branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) called the Federal Government’s treatment of university lecturers “merciless.”
With placards in hand, the lecturers who were protesting entered the campus and sang to express their displeasure.
The rally would be followed immediately by a congress.
Prof. Ayoola Akinwole, Chairman of the ASUU’s UI Chapter, addressed students and journalists at the rally and stated that it was a peaceful protest.
He urged the federal government to implement the union agreement.
Akinwole said, “The current government is one of the most rebellious government Nigeria has at any point seen.The government that doesn’t follow its own rules, doesn’t follow its own courts, and doesn’t spare the working class when it imposes harsh policies.Our individuals reject all of these treatments.

Ademola Aremu, a former National Treasurer of the ASUU, criticized the government for treating lecturers unfairly.
In October, ASUU branches planned a nationwide one-day protest against the Federal Government’s payment of lecturers’ half salaries.
Recently, a number of people have protested, including an ASUU member at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
ASUU called off its eight-month strike on October 14, 2022, after the National Industrial Court ordered the lecturers to resume their work.
However, the union claimed that the government’s response, particularly its “pro-rata” payment of academics’ October salaries, portrayed them as casual workers.
