ASUU threatens to embark on indefinite strike if government stop salaries of members.

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said that it would embark on indefinite strike if the federal government to stop payment of lecturers salaries who failed to register on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

ASUU had opposed the implementation of IPPIS in the tertiary institutions, saying it would among other things, infringe on the university autonomy and that it was out of tune with the operational peculiarities of the university.

In a letter by the Director of IPPIS at the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF), Mr. Olusegun Olufehinti, the OAGF requested the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, to order the stoppage of release of funds for January salaries of the federal universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.LikeCommentShare
