Asuu suspends proposed strike

The Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) has suspended its proposed strike over federal government’s directive to enroll its members into the integrated payroll personnel information system.

ASUU president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who disclosed this in an interview with journalists also noted that the union had decided to maintain status quo, pending further meetings.

Recall that when president Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2020 budget proposal before the lawmakers on oct. 8, 2019, he vowed that Federal government employees not captured on the IPPIS platform by 31st Oct. 2019 would no longer be receiving their salaries.

ASUU had however rejected the deadline, stating that universities operated differently from the civil service and should, therefore, not be seen as appendages of ministries, departments and agencies of government.
