Despite increment, CONUA makes another case for payrise for tertiary institution staff

The Federal Government has received commendation from the Congress of Nigerian University Academics, on Tuesday, for providing personnel at the nation’s tertiary institutions with wage increases of 35% and 23.5%.

Nonetheless, the group advocated another pay rise in order to reflect the realities of the staff after the removal of fuel subsidy.

It also emphasised that it will continue to work with the government on salary increases once the fuel subsidy was removed, despite the fact that the rise was made before the subsidy was removed.
