BREAKING: ASUU Vows To Resume Strike After What FG Did To Its Members

BREAKING: ASUU is planning serious action after FG paid members half salary and it has fixed a date.

News ToGo learned that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, reluctantly suspended its strike in obedience to a court order but it is pushing an appeal against the initial judgment that ordered it to resume work.

However, a recent development where the Federal Government paid members of the union half of their salary for the month of October is raising dust. The new twist emerged on Thursday when an indication emerged that the FG didn’t keep to its word as ASUU members were paid a half-month salary making many of them kick against it.

A senior member of the ASUU at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, who craved anonymity confirmed this development. He noted that the government only paid half salary for the month of October.

“The much I know, those who have called me said they were paid only for eighteen days for the month of October,” he said.

Another academic staff member added: “Yes, I only received 18 working days salary, that’s what they paid me; my colleague received the same.”

The UNILAG chapter of the union described the development as “insensitive and disheartening” on its Twitter page.

The UNILAG branch chairperson, Dele Ashiru wrote: “The leadership of the union at the national level has been duly informed about this unfortunate development and they are on top of the issue”.

At the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, (UDU), Sokoto, the Union has accused the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, of attempts to create disharmony among its members.

There were reports of selective and biased payment of lecturers’ salaries at the university, with some lecturers in the College of Public Health and Medicine receiving all their outstanding salaries.

Ngige had said those categories of workers didn’t participate in the Union’s strike.

Amid low morale among the returning members of the Union, the recent development may complicate the crisis in public universities.

However, ASUU has called a nationwide Congress in its various branches on Tuesday next week to decide what action it will take. The outcome of the ASUU congresses scheduled to hold on November 8, 2022 will determine the next action the lecturers will take against the FG after they were paid half salary.

JUST IN: TB Joshua's Emmanuel TV Channel Removed

YouTube has removed the primary channel associated with the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua—Emmanuel TV.

News ToGo reports that the channel, which broadcasts the religious activities of the church, was taken down following allegations against the late preacher. This action comes after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) aired controversial documentary reports about allegations of torture and rape linked to TB Joshua.

The termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel on YouTube is a response to the platform’s policies against hate speech, cyberbullying, and harassment, particularly targeting survivors of sexual violence. The move follows openDemocracy’s report on more than 50 abusive videos amplifying attacks against Joshua’s accusers.

The documentary by BBC World Service, in collaboration with openDemocracy, featured whistleblowers who made on-the-record allegations of sexual and psychological torture, financial fraud, and criminal negligence by Joshua. In a disturbing backlash, YouTube accounts promoting SCOAN shared archival video footage depicting experiences of these abuse survivors, leading to the termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel.

On Friday, January 5, the Lagos state government carried out the confiscation of goods displayed by traders along the highway.

News ToGo reports that a video circulated online captured the traders pleading for leniency as their merchandise was being seized.

Sharing the video on social media, the state Commissioner of Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, emphasized the need for enforcement without sentiment. He highlighted previous warnings to traders against displaying or selling items on walkways, setbacks, or main roads, as such practices deface the city and pose safety concerns for the public.

Wahab stated, ”We cannot be emotional about enforcement. We have severally warned that traders should desist from displaying or selling things on the walkway, setbacks, or main road. It defaces the city and majorly for people’s safety.
