The National Executive Council of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has commenced its meeting.

It was gathered that the meeting started around 12:40 pm on Monday afternoon.

A member of NEC who preferred anonymity made this known in an interview with newsmen.

ASUU had summoned an emergency NEC meeting following the payment of “half salaries” to lecturers by the government.

Justifying the government’s decision, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, noted that the government paid the lecturers pro-rata.

But human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, who happens to be the lead counsel to ASUU, in a statement released on Sunday, explained why the no-work-no-pay policy could not be applicable to ASUU.
