FG exempts ASUU from IPPIS

The Federal Government, on Friday, accepted the demand by the Academic Staff Union of Universities that they be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

The government also shifted grounds on a number of issues, including the insistence that all the academic staff of federal universities must be paid through the IPPIS platform.

This is happening after weeks of negotiations and disagreements by the FG and ASUU, which proposed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution as its preferred payment platform.

the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities equally developed the University General and Peculiar Personnel and Payroll System in place of the IPPIS.

Reading the communiqué at the end of a seven-hour meeting with ASUU members in Abuja, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, said the government also agreed to ASUU’s demand to pay their members’ salary arrears from February to June through the old salary payment platform, Government Integrated Financial and Management Information System.

The government also offered to increase the earned allowances to university staff from N30bn to N40bn or N35bn and the revitalisation fund from N20bn to N25bn.

The breakthrough in negotiations is expected to end the eight-month strike embarked on by the university lecturers.
