ASUU Launches UTAS As FG’s Alternative To IPPIS

Viewing 0 reply threads
    • The University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) has been presented before the federal government by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as an alternative to the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). UTAS was present to the minister of education, Adamu Adamu by the president of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, on Tuesday, August 18. Moreover, during his briefing in Abuja, Ogunyemi announced that the union will not call off its ongoing strike since, according to him, the government is yet to honour the agreement made in 2019.

      The ASUU boss said: “Now that the union is close to meeting the government’s demand on an alternative to IPPIS, it is our sincere hope that the substantive issues in the ongoing strike action would be given the desired attention.”

      The clarification was issued by Ogunyemi in a phone chat with Premium Times on Sunday, July 19. Ogunyemi explained that what ASUU actually said was that the FG should only allow the reopening of schools when it is absolutely safe for students. “First, we did not say schools should not be reopened until 2021. We only advised that schools be reopened anytime it is considered safe for our children,” he said. Ogunyemi added that the federal government should go beyond simply developing guidelines for safe reopening on paper to ensuring that the guidelines are fully implemented for the safety of students from primary to tertiary institutions.

      Moreover,  the decision of the government to reopen schools nationwide for graduating students to write their final examinations has continued to generate more reactions.

      Ogunyemi faulted the government’s decision that came amid the spread of COVID -19 currently ravaging the country.
