The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU threatens another round of strike over the enrollment in the Integrated Payment Personnel Information System, IPPIS.
This is coming as the Federal Government is set to stop payment to universities’ lecturers who declined to enroll in the payment system. It also accused many of them of collecting multiple salaries.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha receiving the Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, Mohammed Nami said some members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, are collecting three to four salaries per month.
But in his reaction, ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, described the statement as an exaggeration and a mis-representation of facts, adding that the union would respond appropriately if the Federal Government stop the salaries of its members.
Ogunyemi alleged that the government had taken a loan of
one-hundred-and-forty million dollars for the implementation of the IPPIS,
hence the reason why it is bent on enrolling lecturers on the platform.
