The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has insisted that the Federal Government has not paid its university lecturers since the union embarked on industrial action in February this year.
ASUU President, Professor EMMANUEL OSODEKE, who disclosed this on a televised programme accused the Government of using hunger as a tool to force the striking lecturers into returning to classrooms.
Noting that their salaries have been held for the past six months, OSODEKE said the present administration cannot use the force of hunger to pull the striking union members.
According to OSODEKE, Government thinks that depriving the lecturers of their salaries will force the university teachers to collapse and end the strike.
