Our Members Will Proceed On Strike As Soon As Our Salaries Are Stopped – ASUU

Following a circular from the office of the Accountant General of the Federation which was sent to all public universities last week Thursday, with information to with-hold January salary of lecturers who refused to enroll in the IPPIS platform.

Our Members Will Proceed On Strike As Soon As Our Salaries Are Stopped - ASUU

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) begins mobilisation of members against the threat by the Accountant General of the Federation to stop salaries of lecturers this January for failing to enrol in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPIS)

According to the union, her congress members have resolved to activate NO PAY NO WORK as soon as government stops her members’ salaries.

While reacting to the development, Professor Deji Omole, the Chairman University of Ibadan Chapter of ASUU maintained that the union was ready to pursue her stand on autonomy and infringement on FGN-ASUU agreement which IPPIS would erode.

According to him, it was unfortunate that even the President could not 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.

Omole said ASUU rejected IPPIS on point of law, principle and rule of law but has offered an alternative platform which has been named University Transparency and Accountability Solutions ( UTAS ), which would take care of university peculiarities.

He said;

Only patriots can work in our hellish condition. Our position is that the principles of IPPIS are in contradiction to the principles of the autonomy of the university system and the constitution is clear enough because each university has its legal pattern and it doesn’t have provision for IPPIS and it does not even capture the peculiarities of the university system.

We are ready for them. We are not slaves that can be subjected to routine humiliation by government appointees
