”Pay ASUU Salaries” Senator Orji Kalu Pleads With FG

The Senator representing Abia North, Orji Uzor Kalu, has pleaded with the Federal Government to consider paying the striking lecturers some months of salaries to save them and their families from starvation.

Fielding questions from newsmen on Wednesday evening on the welfare of the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities, Kalu pleaded with the federal government and ASUU to reconsider their stands on the persisting strike.

Kalu disclosed, “A lot of students from my constituency have been calling me over the matter and I feel it is godly for all Nigerians, including religious leaders, community leaders and all of us to put all hands together to return ASUU back to work and also save their families; some are starving to death”.

He lamented that the lecturers are suffering in the absence of salaries for about five months, pleading passionately, “I want the federal government to consider paying them some of their salaries while negotiation is still on”.
