Resumption: ASUU Fires Back At FG, Gives Condition For Reopening Of Schools

The ASUU president also insisted that lecturers will not return to classes until the federal government recognised and promptingly considered its agreement with the body in 2009.

Ogunyemi, who noted that the federal government has the right to reopen, however, stated that lecturers will continue to withhold their service.

Addressing the controversy over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), Ogunyemi said the platform is not effective.

According to him, IPPS is creating another a wide avenue for government officials to siphon the public funds.

The university don said:

“We did not close the universities. It is the right of the government to reopen the universities. It is also the right of lecturers to withhold their services.”
