The University of Bayero Kano, in line with the IPPS guidelines of the Integrated System of Information on Wages and Personnel, has finalized the appointment of all its conferences under contract with the University.
The University hinted that the completion of the appointment is in line with federal government guidelines for enrolling staff in the Integrated Personnel Information and Management System (IPPIS) which is not adapted to contract staff.
One of the contract professors, Dr. Sai’du Ahmad Dukawa has confirmed that his contract with the University has ended.
He explained that the university informed him that the resolution was in line with the federal government’s directive to recruit staff on the new payroll platform (IPPIS).
“I have a 7-year contract with the university and my contract is renewed every two years. Although the contract is expected to be renewed next year before it was terminated yesterday.”
The university’s vice chancellor, Professor Muhammad Yahuza Bello, said that the university gave academic professors about the contract 40 days ‘notice prior to their term of office termination, against 30 days’ notice as stipulated in the contract.
He said the university made the decision in line with the federal government’s move to stop the salary of contract teachers.
“” It is a condition for staff registration on the IPPIS payroll platform. And the federal government has made it clear that, with the exception of the university, it would pay such staff from its internally generated income, which we cannot. ”
The vice-chancellor said that the dismissal of contract staff would not affect the institution, since there are no more than 5, and noted that the university has 1,776 academic employees.
He added that hired academic staff who are foreigners are not interested
