The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has insisted that there is no going back on its position on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System of the Federal Government.
ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi who shared the stance of the union on the IPPIS during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday October 29, blamed the payment platform for the alleged irregularities in the payment of salaries and allowances of lecturers.
He also disclosed that some Professors received N8,000 as salaries.
“The issue of what we call amputated salary came into it because the IPPIS platform was not designed for the university system.
“So, the platform does not recognise negotiated agreements like we are talking about allowance – unacademic allowances, research journal, and other things.
“In fact, there were professors that were paid like N8,000 in some months on our campuses. So, we don’t expect anything otherwise because that platform was not meant for the university system.” he said.
