SSANU urges FG to pay 4 months withheld salaries



The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has appealed to the Federal Government to urgently pay four months withheld salaries of its members.

Mr Adedeji Suarau, SSANU Chairman, Federal University Lokoja, told the newsmen on Thursday in Lokoja that the Federal Government had yet to pay May, June, July and August 2022 salaries of its members.

Suarau noted that the government recently paid university lecturers’ withheld salaries.

He said that it would be just for the government to also pay SSANU members.

It was reported that Federal Government withheld four months salaries of SSANU members for engaging in strike in 2022.

All efforts to get the salaries paid failed during the administration of then President Muhammed Buhari.

“We were hopeful when President Tinubu pleaded with governors to ensure that all arrears of salaries would be paid to cushion the effects of economic hardship during his last meeting with them,” he said.
