 The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) encouraged the Federal Government to leave the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS) as condition to cancel its progressing strike in the nation. 

Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU President said this in an assertion made accessible on Sunday in Abuja that the progressing strike may even now wait if government neglected to satisfies its need. The News Agency of Nigeria(NAN) reports that ASUU had set out a cross country strike on March 23 to push on its requests which incorporate revitalisation, Earned Academic Allowances (EAA), renegotiation of the 2009 Agreement, Visitation Panels, among others. As indicated by Ogunyemi, Nigerians should hold on for us. ASUU is doing their fight. "Our Union is attempting to guarantee that the offspring of poor people, who can't bear the cost of the restrictive cost paid in private colleges or don't have occasions to concentrate outside Nigeria, get quality schooling which isn't estimated past their compass. "This will possibly happen when government enough supports state funded colleges and addresses the decay and rot in them. "ASUU has moved situations in certain regards.

 "For example, our individuals have decreased their interest of one tranche N220bn of the extraordinary renewal reserve by 50%. "The Union has likewise concurred that N30bn out of the so far checked back payments of N40bn of the procured scholarly remittances (EAA) be paid to our individuals while the equilibrium of N10bn could be spread throughout the following two tranches, "We were similarly gaining consistent ground on other issues,"he said. ASUU president, in this manner, noticed that what had slowed down significant discourse was government's demand that installment of the retained compensations and different qualifications of its individuals would just be affected through the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). 

He added that administration was rebuffing college educators since they dismissed IPPIS, which was forced on the colleges against the arrangements of the law on self-rule and all inclusive practices. He in any case, said that ASUU was at the last phase of the respectability trial of the Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) with the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA). UTAS was grown locally by ASUU individuals, dissimilar to IPPIS which was designed by the World Bank. Ogunyemi said UTAS had been introduced to the Minister of Education and senior administration staff, the President and initiative of Senate, and the Office of the Accountant-General where NITDA and Office of the National Security Adviser and different MDAs were completely spoken to. 

"Last Thursday, fifth November, 2020, the National Universities Commission (NUC) encouraged the introduction of UTAS to Vice-Chancellors and Bursars of government colleges. "All inquiries raised at the four levels of introduction of UTAS were sufficiently replied. "With the full participation of the concerned offices, the last test with NITDA could be finished as an issue of days and UTAS received instead of IPPIS in our colleges. 

"ASUU can't help contradicting government on the utilization of IPPIS during the alleged change time frame. "In down to earth terms, there is no change period if government is sincere,"Ogunyemi said. The ASUU president said it would take a more drawn out period to catch more than 75% of its individuals who were not yet on IPPIS than the time needed to go through the last phase of the respectability test for UTAS. He added that the case by government that the stage utilized in paying its individuals' pay rates before the burden of IPPIS had been destroyed was false. He noticed that a portion of its individuals who had not taken on IPPIS were paid piece of their retained pay rates a week ago. "In any case, in facilitation of the assault on ASUU, the Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF) has unlawfully held onto all the deducted association registration levy of our individuals over the most recent nine months. 

"Along these lines, government should deliver all what is expected ASUU individuals and the association without the contingency of IPPIS. "That would empower us close on the remarkable five requests including revitalisation, EAA, renegotiation of the 2009 Agreement, initiation of the Visitation Panels. "Others are multiplication of state colleges and administration issues in them of the Union to clear route for the snappy goal of the waiting emergency. "It is government that is delaying the issue, not ASUU," he added.
