The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has suspended its planned strike over Federal Government’s directive to enroll its members into the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System, IPPIS.

ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi noted that the union had decided to maintain status-quo, pending further meetings.

According to him, the union is proposing another template that  would factor-in the peculiarities of the universities and promote their interest.

ASUU had, at different fora, rejected the deadline, stating that universities operated differently from the civil service and should, therefore, not be seen as appendages of ministries, departments and agencies of government.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that when President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2020 budget proposal before lawmakers on Oct. 8, 2019, he vowed that Federal Government Employees not captured on the IPPIS platform by 31st Oct. 2019 would no longer be receiving their salaries.
