NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT MEETS WITH LECTURERS AGAIN OVER ASUU

The federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) will meet again today, Tuesday, to resolve the ongoing warning strike by the lecturers. The meeting was confirmed by senior officials of the union on Monday night.

“We will be meeting with the federal government by 3 p.m.,” an official said.

“The federal government has not paid our salaries; however, they have paid those who are enrolled on IPPIS. This is a warning strike but if it is not resolved, we will proceed to indefinite strike. The workers cannot be asked to go back to work without being paid,” one of the sources said.

This meeting will be the second one since the union started its warning strike last week Monday.

Members of ASUU in federal universities across the country were asked to begin a two-week warning strike in regards to the government’s decision in stopping the February salaries of lecturers who have not registered on the salary Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) payment platform. The union is also protesting poor funding, the proliferation of state universities and non-implementation of previous agreements.

The federal government thereby reached an agreement with the universities on strike, lecturers to integrate the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) into the IPPIS. The IPPIS is the government’s accountability software that has been made compulsory for all public institutions, mainly for personnel payroll.

ASUU is opposed to the use of IPPIS for lecturers saying it does not consider some of the peculiar operations of universities.

The union also told its members not to register with it IPPIS. The union then developed the UTAS which it wants the government to adopt for universities.
