IPPIS: ASUU talk over salary stoppage by Buhari

The President of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi has debunked the viral rumour on social media that President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the stoppage of salaries of university lecturers who are yet to enrol in the ongoing Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) registration.

Prof.  Ogunyemi made this known Tuesday in Abuja that the rumour is not genuine that the union is undergoing consultation and dialogue and they have seen President Buhari to that effect last week.

According to him, “To put the records straight, at no point during the meeting did President Buhari put a closure to the ongoing discussion on ASUU’s preference for the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

He added that President Muhammadu Buhari did not order the closure of account of the members who are yet to participate in the registration process.

“He also did not direct that salaries of ASUU members be stopped for failure to enroll in the IPPIS, Ogunyemi said.

“Any report to the contrary is circulated to mislead the public

“We had useful discussions with the President and we are hopeful that our prayers will receive the expected prompt attention.”

Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) which started towards ending of 2019 is a screening process intended by Federal Government to screen out all academic staff in Nigeria universities that are working in more than one university hence, receiving more than one remuneration from the federal purse. The database process will stop federal government from excessive spending and will create job opportunity for others.
