Senator Shehu Sani (PRP-Kaduna Central) has condemned the “No Work No Pay” rule applied by the Federal Government against striking lecturers.

The Federal Government had ordered Vice Chancellors of the striking federal universities and inter-varsity centres in Nigeria to enforce the “no-work-no-pay rule” on striking lecturers.

In a memo dated Thursday, November 29, 2018, sent by the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) to University Vice Chancellors, the federal government noted that payment of salaries to the striking workers from any other sources would be viewed as a violation of extant rules and Government directive.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Monday, Shehu Sani noted that the ‘No work No Pay’ rule is a contradiction of the principles of ‘progressivism.’

He wrote: “No work no pay” rule applied by the FG against the striking University lecturers is a reactionary and condemnable act.

“Its a contradiction of the principles of ‘progressivism’ as purported by the Governing elites.”
