A professor in the Nigerian university system will earn an N2 million monthly salary if the Federal Government accepts the recommendations of its committee on the 2009 agreements with university-based unions.
The committee also recommended varied yearly allowances for professors. The allowances are for postgraduate supervision, field trip, responsibility and hazard, examination/timekeeper, and teaching practice/industrial supervision.
Others are honoraria for post-graduate thesis (oral exam), external modulation programs for undergraduate/post-graduate students, external assessment of readers, and postgraduate study grants.
The details are contained in a draft proposal of the renegotiated 2009 agreement submitted to the Presidential Committee on Salaries and Wages by Prof Nimi Briggs, chairman of the Renegotiation Committee of the 2009 pacts.
The Nation sighted the proposal in Abuja yesterday.
Briggs said: “All the documents have been submitted to the Minister of Education (Alhaji Adamu Adamu).”
