Dr Segun Ajiboye, the Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan chapter, has described the payment of lecturers’ five-month salary arrears by the Federal Government as encouraging.

Ajiboye told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Ibadan that the federal government had with this started implementing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) reached with the union.

“It is encouraging that the salary arrears have been paid to members, and I believe this cuts across board.

“Right now, members are ready to go back to work. We however expect government to be sincere in fulfilling other aspects of the MOU,’’ he said.
