ASUU bemoans mass resignation of lecturers in public varsities

The ASUU chairman said bad and delayed pay, unpaid allowances, bad infrastructure, lack of respect for the academic community, and a seemingly vanishing hope are some of the factors responsible for lecturers resigning in recent months.

According to Akinwole, building more institutions will not fix the problem.

“The union has received reports on how colleagues resign on a monthly basis because of the way lecturers are treated and poorly remunerated in Nigeria.

“Universities around the world are poaching more quality hands, and if not halted by the government, through intentional reviewing of upward conditions of service, it will be difficult to retain the best hands.

“Vice Chancellors cannot single-handedly employ to replace staff as urgent as it is needed again. They have to contact Abuja for approval, which may take six months to a year, if not more, before they get approval. By this time, the best candidate has gone to a more serious country that respects quality.

“Sadly, people from higher up there from the Ministry of Education to legislators themselves want to dictate who the universities should employ,” the Oyo State ASUU chairman added.
