The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has confirmed that the dispute over the payment platform involving the Integrated Payroll and Persona Information System, IPPIS, and the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, has been handled.

The issue of payment platform has been one of the major contending issues between the FG and the university lecturers.

However, ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, in an interview with Channels Television on Monday raised hope that the strike by the union may soon be called off if things go well during a meeting today (Tuesday).

Osodeke accused the government of not doing enough to put an end to the ongoing industrial action by its union.

He said, “The issue of IPPIS and UTAS has been put to rest. If the government agrees with us tomorrow, everything will be resolved.”

“The issues of IPPIS and UTAS have been put to rest as agreed with the Chief of Staff, the UTAS will be implemented.

“You see, if this government is serious, this strike will not last more than two weeks. The President directed the Minister of Education to finish within two weeks, now two weeks have passed and they didn’t come back,” he added.
