ASUU Faction Urges Lecturers To Enrol For IPPIS

There is a rift between the Congress of University Academics, CONUA, and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, over policies on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS.

CONUA supports the government stance while ASUU does not.  CONUA has directed university lecturers to comply with the federal government directive to register on the IPPIS.

The national publicity coordinator of CONUA, Dr Nwoke Onyebuchi, gave the counter directive at a meeting by members of CONUA in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.  CONUA is a faction of ASUU.

ASUU had rejected a federal government’s directive mandating workers at its universities and colleges of education to enroll into IPPIS before December the seventh.  But, Onyebuchi said rather than wait for a new template, IPPIS scheme would improve the academic system in the nation’s tertiary institutions.
