16 Oct FG, ASUU meeting deadlocked over IPPIS
The meeting between the Federal Government and the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, over the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, platform last night ended in deadlock.
ASUU was said to be adamant as members insisted that payment of their outstanding salaries could be made through on GIFMIS before full implementation of UTAS, but FG maintained that it must be on IPPIS.
The union has directed all its members to reject IPPIS officials reportedly coming to various campuses on Monday for biometric data capturing of its members.
An official letter, signed by ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, sent to all zonal coordinators and all its members, reiterated that the union will not jeopardise the ongoing critical engagement with federal government.
