No fewer than 240 lecturers, including professors, at the University of Lagos, enrolled on the Integrated Personnel Payment Information System against the directive by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
The affected lecturers have been sanctioned by the UNILAG chapter of ASUU . The sanction is coming about one week after ASUU suspended its nine -month strike over the non- payment of salaries of ASUU members who failed to enrol into IPPIS and other unfulfilled agreements between ASUU and successive administrations.
ASUU had opposed IPPIS used in settling workers ’ salaries by FG and developed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution which is currently undergoing test -run by the
National Information Technology Development Agency . It also asked its members not to enrol on IPPIS , arguing that it was against the autonomy of universities among other reasons.
