Strike looms as ASUU warns FG over imposition of IPPIS on members

The Academic Staff Union of Universities ( ASUU) says it will not hesitate to declare total strike to reinforce members rejection of the Integrated Payment Personnel Information System (IPPIS) being imposed on them by the federal government.

The Ibadan Zone of ASUU made the position known on Sunday at a news conference

The Zone comprises of the University of Ibadan (UI), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), University of Osun (UNISON), and Kwara State University ( KWASU).

ASUU insisted on no pay, no work while rejecting the proposed enrollment of its members on the controversial IPPIS platform.

The Zonal Coordinator, ASUU Ibadan Zone, Dr. Ade Adejumo, while addressing described the IPPIS as a new and strange regime of finance about to be forced on public universities in Nigeria.

ASUU, therefore, declared that the current anti-corruption fight on which the government hinged the IPPIS platform, is nothing, but to suppress the masses, and force the people to keep silence in the face of wholesale corruption in the government.
