The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, has condemned and rejected the casualisation of academic staff of Nigerian Universities.

The ASUU Chairman of the FUD branch, Bashir Yusuf, who disclosed this during the protest on Thursday, noted that the action is against all conventional laws, international labor laws, and civil service rules.

Yusuf explained that the lecturers are full-time workers whose nature of work has some peculiarities that make them not 8am to 4pm civil servants.

While noting that University lecturing is an all-time job that covers class teaching, research, and community service, he added that “they cannot be paid on pro-rata or even half their salaries based on a legal strike even after it was suspended”.

The union, therefore, urged the federal government to pay their full salaries and allowances.

The lecturers staged a match from the student center to the senate building of the university, while calling for the students and lecturers’ right to study in a conducive atmosphere of learning across Nigerian universities.
