ASUU Strike: Why Buhai Govt Reversed Decision To Reopen Varsities

ASUU Threatens Fresh Strike Action

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has threatened to embark on a nationwide strike action over the government’s stand on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The strike notice was issued by the ASUU national president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, on Wednesday after a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, held at the Federal University of Technology, Minna.

Naija News recalls the federal government and ASUU have been at loggerheads over the implementation of IPPIS.

The government is insisting the lecturers must sign up on the IPPIS while the ASUU members on their part have rejected government position, insisting their members will not sign up on the IPPIS platform.

Ogunyemi said further that the union shall activate the “No pay, No Work’ clause if the federal government fails to pay their salaries over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The statement obtained in a series of tweets on ASUU’s official Twitter handle reads:

“Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has threatened to embark on a nationwide strike if the federal government makes any attempt to stop salaries of their members over Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

“ASUU national president, Biodun Ogunyemi, who declared this yesterday, after a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, held at the Federal University of Technology, Minna from 7th-8th, December, 2019, said the union shall activate its standing resolution of “No pay, No Work.”

“He noted that the union is shocked that the OAGF said IPPIS is meant to comply with global best practices when they cannot tell Nigerians or any other country where IPPIS is extended to the universities as one of the best practices.”
