The Academic Staff Union of (Nigerian) Universities, ASUU, says issues of Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS), and the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS – major issues that led to the lingering strike by the union – have been resolved.
As the government meets with the academic union today, ASUU President Emmanuel Osodeke said he hoped the lecturers would go back to classrooms today.
In an interview on Monday evening with Channels Television, Osodeke said the government had not done enough to end the lingering strike.
He said: “The issue of IPPIS and UTAS has been put to rest. If the government agrees with us tomorrow, everything will be resolved.
“The issues of IPPIS and UTAS have been put to rest as agreed with the Chief of Staff, the UTAS will be implemented.
“You see, if this government is serious, this strike will not last more than two weeks. The president directed the minister of education to finish within two weeks, now two weeks have passed and they didn’t come back.”
