We are expecting Buhari’s decision on IPPIS –ASUU President


ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, said the union remained committed to its tradition of consultation and dialogue.The union had been embroiled in a row with the Federal Government over directives that ASUU members should enroll in the payroll system as mandated by Buhari during his budget presentation at the National Assembly last year.

ASUU instead came up with its own model, the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, which it wants the Federal Government to adopt.
Ogunyemi, in his statement, said at no point during the meeting did Buhari put a closure to the ongoing discussion on ASUU’s preference for UTAS or directed that the salaries of ASUU members should be stopped for failure to enroll in the IPPIS
The union had been embroiled in a row with the Federal Government over directives that ASUU members should enroll in the payroll system as mandated by Buhari during his budget presentation at the National Assembly last year.
The ASUU president said the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Ahmed Zainab, spoke spiritedly in defence of the IPPIS, including “levelling some unfounded allegations against ASUU in order to portray the union in bad light before Mr President.”
He added, “Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, and Secretary to Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, alluded to the possibility of ‘marrying’ ASUU’s UTAS with IPPIS.
