Academic activities in the nation’s public universities may be halted again as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has begun mobilisation of her members against the threat by the Accountant General of the Federation to stop salaries of lecturers this January for failing to enrol into the Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPIS).
A circular from the office of the Accountant General of the Federation ( AGF) was sent to all public universities on last week Thursday, with information to withhold January salary of lecturers who refused to enrol in the IPPIS platform.
But ASUU stated that her members have resolved to activate “no work, no pay” as soon as government stops her members’ salaries.
The Chairman University of Ibadan Chapter of ASUU, Professor Deji Omole, while reacting to the development on Sunday in Ibadan maintained that the union was ready to pursue her stand on autonomy and infringement on FGN-ASUU agreement.
Omole stated it is unfortunate that even the president cannot be trusted after assuring the union to look into the matter and set-up committee to harmonise UTAS and IPPIS tabled before him at the last meeting. (Nigerian Tribune)
