Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has described the Federal Government as greatest promoter of fake news over its claim that it has enrolled over 39,000 lecturers on the controversial Integrated Personnel Payroll and Information System (IPPIS).
The ASUU Chairman University of Ibadan, Professor Deji Omole, who described the story as fraudulent and fictitious, asked the government to stop fooling itself, while stating that the Union recorded over 90 percent compliance from her highly focussed, dedicated and loyal members.
The Professor of Forest Engineering stated that university lecturers are different from university workers which the government claims it enrolled.
The Union advised Federal Government to stop breaking the law in the name of fighting corruption and offer to help government in anti-corruption fight without breaking the law.
While congratulating the First Lady, Aisha Buhari on the graduation of her daughter from a foreign university with First Class degree, Omole asked her to use “the other room strategy” to make her family give Nigerian children the kind of education her daughter enjoyed abroad.
ASUU maintained that the allegation that it was supporting corruption by refusing to enlist on IPPIS was untrue, stated that her opposition was based on law and the rights and privileges of the university lecturers which the template will trample upon. (New Telegraph)
