Falana: ASUU’s demands not unreasonable

Human rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN) has said the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is not asking the government to pay for the job not done.

“The government said we can’t pay ASUU for being on strike…if the strike is called off today, unlike other sectors of the economy, ASUU will ensure that the syllabus for the year is covered.

In other words, no student will miss a lecture because they are going to have crash programmes, no holidays, no weekends, lectures will be taken. So, they are going to work. They are not saying ‘pay us for services we are not going to render’,” Falana said while on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily.

ASUU have promised not to resume academic activities unless the federal government agrees to pay their outstanding salaries, along with other demands.
