Falana Sues FG Over No-Work-No-Pay Policy Against ASUU
Human rights lawyer Femi Falana (SAN) filed a lawsuit against the federal government yesterday for what he called discriminatory, unfair, and illegal treatment of members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The Minister of Labour and Employment, the Attorney-General of the Federation, and the Accountant-General of the Federation are named as defendants in the suit before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Falana is asking the court to determine “Whether having paid the salaries of members of the Joint Staff Union, National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD), and lecturers in the medical facilities/medical and dental academic of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nnewi Campus, Anambra State during the period of industrial action, the decision to withhold the salaries of ASUU members from February to October 2022 is not discriminatory and illegal.”
Falana also requests that the court determine “whether ASUU members are entitled to immediate payment of their salaries for the months of February to October 2022.”
According to Falana, the failure of the federal government to respond to ASUU’s demands has prolonged the labour dispute until October 2022.
According to him, the teaching portion of our job was reinstated per the orders of the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals.
