IPPIS: ASUU Accuses FG Of Manipulation, Playing A Game Of Deception
Written by COMFORT 95.1FM on November 9, 2020
Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has accused Federal Government of manipulation, as both parties fail to reach a compromise over the lingering strike by the lecturers.
ASUU National President, Abiodun Ogunyemi, who made the accusation today during a televised interview, blamed the government for the inability of union members to return to class since March.
While both parties are at loggerheads over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, Ogunyemi insisted that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, was the way to go for the lecturers.
Professor Ogunyemi noted that while progress was being made, the government insisted that there was a transition period within which ASUU members would first be captured in the IPPIS before migrating to UTAS.
He, however, accused the government of playing a game of deception, saying it has failed to show commitment in resolving the impasse.
