“The Union was working to ensure that lecturers who are yet to receive their salaries for four months get paid while also working tirelessly at getting new salaries and welfare packages commensurate with global standards for her members.

“It is against the ongoing struggle for any member to participate in any appointment during the time because it will fail all standard procedures.

“How many institutions can boast of functional institutional mail? How many of the institutions have functional Internet service? Some of them are behind the problems facing universities with corrupt behaviours.

“ASUU wrote petitions to anti-corruption agencies on these VCs but got no results, which makes us to believe they are working with the ruling class to destroy common patrimony. Employing under IPPIS while on strike is also an illegality.

“They will insist on the reversal of such appointments. We shall pursue our desire to get the best of University for our Children as well as a best welfare system for our members.”
