The national president of the union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke disclosed this on Thursday while fielding questions from journalists at the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State.

 

He lamented that the Federal Government decided to seize salaries of the striking lecturers because they embarked on strike, saying such does not happen anywhere in the world.

 

He said, “We don’t have a certain statistic but a large number of our members have moved out of the country not because they hate this country but because of the way they are being treated.

 

“There’s no country in the world where their academics will go on strike and you think the best weapon is to seize their salary”.

 

Recall that ASUU on February 14 shut down public universities over the inability of the Federal Government to implement previous agreements the both parties entered into.
