ASUU plans showdown against Federal Government

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is planning another showdown with the Federal Government over what it called the government’s planned imposition of Integrated Personnel Payroll System (IPPIS) on its members.

The union leaders have summoned an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting where it agreed that the union should begin mobilisation of members for action against the government.

The President had reportedly directed that any worker not on the IPPIS would no longer get salary.

The Chairman of the University of Ibadan (UI) chapter of the union, Professor Deji Omole, on Sunday said ASUU was not against accountability but would resist any attempt by the government to violate existing laws and autonomy of the university.

Omole said the union had offered to assist the Federal Government in designing the appropriate template to address the peculiarities of university lecturers in the IPPIS.

But the union leader noted that the government seemed bent on using what he called the World Bank-designed exploitative template.
