The Federal Government has cleared the backlog of salaries of medical lecturers at the Usmanu Dan Fodiyo University, Sokoto.

In a statement made available to newsmen yesterday, the branch chairman of ASUU, UDUS, Dr M.N Al-Mustapha noted the order was given by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.

The statement partly read, “Recall also that, on July 14, 2022, the Honourable Minister of Labour and Employment granted an interview with Arise TV, where he stated, ‘Medical lecturers are at work, they are teaching. Sokoto has graduated their medical students, they are reasonable people, they have tested the strike and saw that it produces no result, yes they did it the last time. So, today, they have written, their Vice Chancellor has approved that they are at work.’
