Ashiru said the aim of the protest rally is simply to draw the attention of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to ASUU’s strong dissatisfaction of the Federal Government’s attempt at casualisation of the academics in the country by using ‘no-work, no-pay policy’ to remunerate them.

The UNILAG ASUU Chairman insisted that university lecturers are intellectuals and professionals and cannot, therefore, be treated like casual workers.
