Only in Nigeria public varsity lecturers are paid by Accountant-General, says ASUU president

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has reacted to the manner the salaries of lecturers are paid through the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation.

Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the president of ASUU made this revelation in a meeting with the federal government.

The Informant247 learnt that the meeting was brokered by Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, on Wednesday.

Report has it that the ASUU president, at the meeting, condemned the manner public varsity lecturers salaries are paid by the AGF’s office saying that their data are gathered by foreign companies.

The president wondered why it’s only in Nigeria that the salaries of public universities lecturers come from the office of Accountant General of the Federation.

The president said: “We were told exactly this same thing in 2017. They all came and told us at the same time. Are we really patriotic? They are paying money to foreign companies per person.

“We have two options. Use the one we have developed. Is there any other country in the world where the salaries of universities are paid by the office of the accountant general? No country in the world will harvest the data of their university lecturers and give (it) to a foreign company.”
