The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Sunday warned it may resume its suspended strike over victimization of members and non-payment of salaries.

It accused the Federal Government of victimising its members and tactically avoiding payment of their salaries for up to 10 months.

In a statement by the chairman, University of Ibadan branch of ASUU, Prof. Ayo Akinwole, the union said despite suspending strike on December 24, 2020 on the condition that its members would not be victimised for their role in the last strike, many lecturers were still being owed salaries of between two and 10 months.

ASUU stated that while members are back to their duty posts to work, the harsh economy due to unpaid salaries and non-refund of deducted check-off dues will affect productivity.

Akinwile said the government has refused to remit deductions it made to the account of the union suggesting it is a plan to stifle ASUU.

The union leader warned that members could be forced to withdraw their services again if pushed to the limit.
