ASUU Criticizes Ngige, Rejects IPPIS Payment System

The Academic State Union of Universities, ASUU has reaffirmed its position on the full implementation of the 2009 Federal Government/ASUU agreement, insisting that they will not join the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS.

It would be recalled that the Union on Monday began a two-week strike to press the Federal Government to implement its 2009 agreement and resolution as well as excluding public university lecturers from the IPPIS.

Addressing journalists at the Bayero University, Kano secretariat, the Zonal ASUU Chairman, Mahmoud Lawan said the Union would continue to remain resolute on the issue of IPPIS.

Bayero University was joined by other universities including the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State, during the news conference.

Lawan cautioned that any attempt by the government to dictate what happens in the university system would erode the autonomy of the universities by making them incapable of delivering on their mandate of teaching, research and community service. He also dismissed as false the claim of the Federal Government that 55 per cent of its members were enrolled into the IPPIS.
