She explains that the delay in pay is due to taxation adjustments by the government, which FNU’s finance department has had to update in their system before salaries are released.

She clarifies that FNU does not pay its staff on Wednesday but rather on Thursday, and the money is disbursed into staff accounts on the same day or Friday, depending on their bank of choice.

The Vice-Chancellor has confirmed that the pay for this cycle has been disbursed.
