ASUU strike nears its end

Published

on

It appears the ongoing ASUU strike will soon come to an end as the Federal Government is putting final touches to meeting some reasonable demands of ASUU as both parties are said to have reached an understanding.

It is reported that the FG is determined to end the ongoing strike action in less than two weeks.

A Government source was quoted saying;

“On our part, we have been working round the clock to end the strike, which we are hopeful will end within a week or two at the most.

“I can confirm to you that government has already agreed to meet some of the reasonable demands of ASUU like the reconstitution of boards and councils and the issue of the legal framework regarding the retirement age of Professors and the like. We are making reasonable progress.”

Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie also confirmed the development saying that both parties were looking forward to ending the dispute.

    Federal Government should do something very urgent about asuu’s strike.what could be the reasons behind such motives for a great nation like Nigeria to closed down it universities and abandon educational system for more than 2 months. I think Nigerian Government should show regard and attach a great importance to the committment which every university entails.

Exemption Of ASUU From IPPIS Temporary — Ngige

Exemption Of ASUU From IPPIS Temporary —Ngige

Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that the Federal Government’s proposal to exempt members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is a temporary measure.

He explained on Saturday that this measure was pending the conclusion of the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Ngige who clarified the position of the government team during Friday’s negotiation with ASUU said that it was not true that the government had abandoned IPPIS or that ASUU should not be on IPPIS.

“I think it is better because a lot of people are quoting us out of context saying that we abandoned the IPPIS and that we said they should not be on IPPIS, it is not true.

“What we said in the meeting and what we agreed was that in the interim for the transition period that UTAS is being tested by NITDA and the Office of National Security Adviser for cybersecurity. For those transition period, ASUU members that are not yet on IPPIS will be paid through the platform with which they were paid the President’s compassionate COVID-19 payment done to them between the months of February and June.

“That platform is a hybrid platform between IPPIS and MINPSI platform for the transition period. That was what was used, it’s a hybrid.”
