The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Lagos chapter, Dr Dele Ashiru, has spoken about the salary of professors in Nigeria.

According to him, Nigerian professors do not earn more than N416,000 as monthly salary.

Ashiru disclosed this during an interview on the Sunrise Daily programmed on Channels Television, stating that university lecturers deserved better welfare packages.

He said, “No Nigerian professor earns more than N416,000 in a month as the total package. We are saying let us renegotiate this agreement so that people’s conditions of service will improve.

“As I speak to you, our members have been earning the same salary since 2009 till date. I don’t think there is any section of the Nigerian economy and society that has been so treated.

“The highest-paid professor which means that if he remains in the university system for the next 10-15 years will not earn more than the same amount he’s been earning since 2009.”

On Monday, ASUU issued a 21-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to implement the agreement they had reached in 2020 following their strike action that lasted for nine months.

The Federal Government and ASUU had reached an agreement to improve the welfare and remuneration of university lecturers, settle unpaid allowances, and provide a fund to revitalise Nigeria’s universities.

Ashiru, however, noted that the Federal Government had not signed the Memorandum of Agreement since May, despite a renegotiation.
