Lawmaker Urges FG To Cut Their Salaries To Pay ASUU

The senator representing Borno South in the National Assembly, Ali Ndume, has urged the Federal Government to slash the salaries of NASS members by 50 percent to give it to the Academic Staff Union of Universities so as to meet their pressing demands.

Ndume stated this during an interaction with newsmen in Maiduguri as he reacted to the alleged half-pay to the ASUU members.

The former Senate Leader advised the FG to set up a high-powered standing committee of respected educationists and patriotic Nigerians to meet with the leadership of ASUU in order to find a lasting solution to the lecturers’ demands.

He said, “Even if it means that the National Assembly will reduce sitting allowances or be paid on casual allowances basis whenever they sit at the Lower and Upper chambers, by cutting the recurrent expenditure in the budget of the federal lawmakers to settle the ASUU arrears, let it be.
