A senior member of the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities ASUU has said that members of the union have received full salaries .
The union leader at the Bayero University Kano revealed this in a chat with journalists in Abuja.
He said: “Some of our members have started receiving salaries and I can confirm to you that we received our full salaries for the month of November. However, the arrears are still withheld.”
