In addition to being owed salaries, members still have their monies being deducted randomly, lamenting that nothing tangible has been done about it, ASUU further stated.

The Union urged the federal government to resolve the issue before its NEC meets next month to avoid a fresh crisis in the system.

“We have some of our members whose salaries are still being deducted; you have some of them going home with N26,000, some going home with N47,000; Some are being owed for 16 months and nothing tangible has been done about it.
