The Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Tuesday said no Nigeria professor earns more than N416,000 as salary.

Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Dele Ashiru advocated for better welfare packages for university lecturers.


He noted that despite the renegotiated agreement, the Federal Government has not signed the Memorandum of Agreement since May.


“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,” he said.


“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.”
