ASUU Sanctions 240 Lecturers for Enrolling on IPPIS


   Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU), University of Lagos Chapter, sanctioned over 240 lecturers for enrolling into the federal government Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) opposed by the union.

The resolution which was agreed during the ASUU-UNILAG congress that took place on dec 29th, 2020 was signed by the union chairman Dele Ashiru.

The statement read;

"Hence, they cannot be trusted with any position of responsibilities for which the votes of our members are required now and in the future.

“It is the resolution of Congress that the members involved shall therefore not enjoy the support and votes of members of ASUU-UNILAG in any election (s) they stand for now or in the future.”

ASUU and the federal government had been at loggerheads over the use of the IPPIS.

The union had rejected the initiative on the ground that it infringes on university autonomy and does not capture the remuneration of staff on sabbatical, external examiners, external assessors, and Earned Academic Allowances (EAA).

ASUU had instead proposed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) for payment.
