The national president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Professor Biodun Ogunyemi said Thursday that the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) of the federal government is a “disruptive intrusion” into the Nigerian university system.
Professor Biodun Ogunyemisaid this at a meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of ASUU at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
“IPPIS violates the laws of the federation, violates university statutes, and violates agreements between the Federal Government and ASUU.
“The government should welcome ASUU’s ongoing innovation of a robust system of human resource management and compensation called the University Transparency and
Accountability Solution, which would address peculiarities of universities and end inappropriate recruitments,” he said.
He said the federal government’s Visitor initiative to the universities at least once in five years was the best guarantee for monitoring accountability processes that include internal and external audit processes.
