Latest: FG, ASUU Currently in a Crucial Meeting Over IPPIS

The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) are currently holding a crucial meeting over the two-week warning strike embarked upon by the university lecturers.

The union had last week Monday declared a two-week warning strike over the non-payment of salaries to their members who failed to enroll into the federal government’s Integrated Payroll Personal Information System (IPPIS).

The meeting is currently holding at the office of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige. The minister noted that the meeting would be divided into two sessions, namely the open session and the technical session. In attendance at the meeting are Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo; Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris; the Minister of Education (State), Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba and the ASUU delegation led by its president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi.

Other issues which are yet to be addressed by the Federal Government includes the revitalisation of University, Earned Academic allowances. Recall that Ngige had last Thursday adjourned the meeting, saying that conditions were put in place to merge both the IPPIS prototype and the UTAS developed by ASUU. Both parties were expected to reconvene today after wider consultations from both sessions.
