The federal government has withdrawn the “No work, no pay” threat on striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (Asuu), the union’s president, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi has said.
“Well, we have confirmed that they have withdrawn that threat (no work no pay),” Ogunyemi said as he revealed that negotiation meeting between the Union and government would continue on Monday.
“So it appears the threat is not there for now. But even if the threat is there, we are prepared for that because for our members, no sacrifice is too much to salvage Nigeria’s education.
“Shortly before our action while the NLC (Nigeria Labour Congress) hullabaloo was going on with federal government, they went to the Federal Executive Council that they were activating that rule.”
