Senator Lawan, who called on the government and ASUU to find common ground for the benefit of students, also asked union members to be prepared to meet with the government midway through and end the strike so that students could return to class. “Recent reports show that experienced academics with special skills in the employment of different contract universities are now being laid off according to the IPPIS operators` management.” “As a result, students of decoupled contract staff are in great danger. If Nigerian universities are no longer able to make decisions about the calibre and number of academics they need to provide quality training, what remains of academic autonomy and academic freedom,” ASUU asked. “Is Asuu the primary manager of salary and staff information at universities? Second, how many of those responsible for so-called “double payments” have been detained, brought to justice and imprisoned by the government? He said. The government has now said the funds will be split between the National Association of Academy Technologists (NAAT), the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Union of Staff of the Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), after a meeting with representatives of non-academics on Wednesday. He added that the union had discussed setting a new date for the resumption of negotiations at a meeting with the Minister of Education last Monday, and that the minister had told them that he would consult on the matter. ASSU President Professor Biodun Ogunyemi said in an interview with The PUNCH that the government should authorize the National Information Technology Development Agency to conduct an integrity test on UTAS. Ngige said the two sides would meet again on Monday after the ASUU delegation consulted with its National Executive Council (NEC). He called on the federal government to manage the union`s turmoil with the necessary seriousness and stressed that mismanagement of the industrial crisis could lead to a new wave of brain drain, which will have a crippling effect on science and the nation as a whole.
“From the discussion we had, we agreed that we would be consulted. We will not be able to comment on the proposals that have been put forward before we consult with our members. We will leave it there for now. He explained to me. The Nigerian government has reached an interim agreement with striking university professors on the integration of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) into the Integrated Wage and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). He said: “Some of the issues that were not implemented in the 1999 agreements are the issue of university funding. For example, in the agreement, there are ways to release funds, there are deadlines for the release of funds to universities; The government only released $25 billion after the strike was suspended, and nothing has been released since then. Nairametrics had previously indicated that ASUU had cancelled its eight-month strike. It stated that the union made the decision after agreeing to accept the government`s NN70 billion payment and that the payment of its salary arrears should not be made through the Integrated Compensation and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). We thought the government had argued with us that IPPIS could not function in the university system.
He did not say anything against the fact that the strike, which began on March 9, did not follow an ordinary procedure, he brought the teachers to a round table with the federal Department of Education and the general accountant of the Confederation. The branch`s president, Dr. Maigoro, said, “We are coming out of a special congress that has been set up to see how well the federal government has implemented the agreement it has reached with ASUU since 2009. It was reported that ASUU had indicated that the meeting, the strike that began in March, would be cancelled shortly after a meeting with the management of the union and its bodies.
