“Fight your battles, don’t use us as bait” – ASUU warns NAAT, others

NEWSMAN, Lagos – Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) has said the National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, or any other union should not use it as a bait to get anything from the government.

ASUU, therefore, advised NAAT or any other staff union not to fight their battles their own ways.

Chairman, University of Lagos, UNILAG chapter of ASUU, who is also a member of the National Executive Committee of the union, Dr Dele Ashiru, stated this on Sunday while reacting to claims by NAAT expressing displeasure with the sharing arrangement of the N40 billion released by the Federal Government as Earned Academic Allowances for university workers, Vanguard reported.

“Who pays the Earned Academic Allowances, is it ASUU or the government?  In the first instance, ASUU presented its demands to the government and we made our case and based on that, the government released some money, he said.

“The money was not even up to what we demanded but we made the necessary concession in the interest of all. However, the National Universities Commission, NUC, also saw the need to carry other unions along and made the request on their behalf.

“Nobody should use ASUU as a bait to get anything from the government. We do fight our own battles and we want other unions to also fight their battles themselves”, he added.
