ASUU opposes moves to incorporate lecturers’ pay in IPPIS
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) yesterday called on the National Assembly to resist moves by the office of the Accountant General of the Federation to incorporate university lecturers’ wage in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS)
The ASUU Coordinator, Lagos Zone, Prof. Olusiji Sowande, at a press briefing in Abeokuta, Ogun State maintained that a presidential directive or a government policy could not supersede an extant law.
According to him, the union is not opposed to accountability and transparency in the handling of public funds, but would oppose any method that “violates ASUU’s agreement with government.”
He argued that the IPPIS was a directive that “seeks to breach the ASUU-FGN of 1992, 2001 and 2009 which received legislative backing by the National Assembly.”
