The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ibadan zone, comprising of University of Ibadan, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, University of Osun, and Kwara State University, had on Sunday, October 27, made it clear to the federal government that if it fails to pay up salaries of its members by the end of October, it would be left with no option than to embark on a strike.
It disclosed that its rejection is targeted at the union’s opposition of the Integrated Payment Personnel Information System (IPPIS) that was forced on them by the government.
ASUU said it is enforcing no pay, no work rule in its rejection of the IPPIS policy. The zonal coordinator of the union, Ade Adejumo, described the policy as new and strange. The union, therefore, said that the anti-corruption mask that the government shielded the platform with is just a way to oppress the masses.
ASUU also adviised the FG to stop beating about the bush and do the needful by sitting down and addressing all the issues that the union has brought up.
