The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi has condemned delay in the payment of retirement benefits for the members.
Prof. Ogunyemi gave this condemnation in while speaking at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU Ago-Iwoye sensitization workshop on Implications of Contributory Pension Scheme on Monday, April 15, 2019.
Ogunyemi, represented by the Zonal Coordinator, Abuja branch, Theophilus Lagi, said it was appalling that workers who had diligently served Nigeria were not appreciated.
He said: “Eminent scholars and senior colleagues who retired from the Nigerian University System (NUS) in the last two decades or so have not been spared of these and other forms of undignified treatment.
“NUPEMCO is an expression of the basic commitment of our Union to the protection of the life and the future of members of the university community. For this reason, it is our duty to nurture it to become the best in the industry.”
