‘We Are READY For Strike’- ASUU Tells Federal Government

Dr Lazarus Maigoro, chairman of the University of Jos chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has told the Buhari government why lecturers cannot enroll in the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

Maigoro said IPPIS violates the university Act 2003.

He said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Jos that the policy did not fit into the university system.

He noted that the law establishing all federal universities had bestowed on governing councils of the institutions the powers to administer over its administrative, financial and personnel matters.

Maigoro threatened that members of the union would down tolls and proceed on a nationwide strike if the government insisted on implementing the IPPIS policy.

“Why we can’t accept IPPIS is because of the retrogressive nature of the payment platform to the peculiar nature of the university system.

“Actually, IPPIS violates the university Act of 2003, where the governing councils are supposed to be the ones to administer over the administrative, financial and personnel of every university.

“With IPPIS in the university, it means government is taking all the functions of councils off them, without resorting to the National Assembly to repel the existing law.

“We have taken our stand on this matter; we insist that the laws of land must not be violated.

“But if government goes ahead with its plan, we will have to down tools; we will also not work,” he said.
