ASUU threatens to embark on nationwide strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has threatened to start a national strike soon.

The ASUU national president, Biodun Ogunyemi, declared it on Wednesday after a meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC), held at the Federal University of Technology in Minna

Ogunyemi stated that the union will activate its resolution of “No pay, No Work’ if the federal government tries to stop its salaries through the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

This was revealed in a series of posts on the official ASUU Twitter handle.

The post read: “Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has threatened to embark on a nationwide strike if the federal government makes any attempt to stop salaries of their members over Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

“ASUU national president, Biodun Ogunyemi, who declared this yesterday, after a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, held at the Federal University of Technology, Minna from 7th-8th, December, 2019, said the union shall activate its standing resolution of “No pay, No Work.”

“He noted that the union is shocked that the OAGF said IPPIS is meant to comply with global best practices when they cannot tell Nigerians or any other country where IPPIS is extended to the universities as one of the best practices.”
