Written by darling on October 21, 2019
Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has started mobilizing its members against the federal government over planned imposition Integrated Personnel Payroll System (IPPIS).
Leaders of the Union had summoned an emergency National Executive Council meeting of the Union where they agreed that the leadership of the Union at university levels should begin mobilisation of members across the country for an action against President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
Chairman, University of Ibadan Chapter DEJI OMOLE, said that the union was not against accountability but would resist attempt by the government to violate existing laws and autonomy of the University.
According to OMOLE, ASUU has offered to help the federal government design the appropriate template that will factor in the peculiarities of university lecturers in the IPPIS but the government seems bent on using the world-bank designed exploitative template.
