The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has been accused of blackmailing Nigeria governments.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, who levelled the allegation urged the National Assembly to enact laws that would mandate ASUU to pay the salaries of striking members.
She said it is unfair for the academic body executives to live off the union’s dues alone.
In a tweet, she wrote: “ASUU has blackmailed every government in Nigeria. The National Assembly should enact a law that mandates ASUU to pay the salaries of striking members.
“The current situation where ASUU executives alone, live off Union Dues leaving members high and dry, is unfair to their members.”
