The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God,(RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has expressed concern about the poor remuneration earned by lecturers in higher institutions of learning in Nigeria and some other countries.

Adeboye said this in a statement issued, Saturday, by Mr Toyin Adebule, the Deputy Registrar, Information, University of Lagos (UNILAG), after a visit by the management of the University to the man of God.

The RCCG GO noted that academics were great assets to national development and moulders of human lives and should therefore be well appreciated.

According to him, considering the great services they (lecturers) offer to countries, it is only natural that enough attention is paid to them.

Adeboye, a former lecturer of Mathematics at UNILAG, said lecturers all over the world were the best in the society and this should reflect in their salaries.

The cleric recently endowed a Professorial Chair in the Department of Mathematics, worth N50 million, to encourage teaching and research in the subject.

The delegation from the university was led by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics & Research), Prof. Babajide Alo, who represented the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Rahamon Bello.

Bello thanked the cleric for choosing UNILAG for the endowment and promised that its authorities would sustain the relationship.

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.”
