Varsity Workers Won’t be Cowed into Enrolling on IPPIS - ASUU Tells FG
Nwolu Obiajulu

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), accused the Federal Government of engaging in blackmail of its workers into enrolling on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

Dr Austen Sado, Chairman of the University of Port Harcourt Branch of ASUU, on Sunday said members of the union will not be pushed into enrolling on IPPIS despite some of its members not being paid salaries since February.

Sado spoke in reaction to the order stopping the salaries of university workers who are yet to enroll on IPPIS.

He said, “The directive to stop salaries clearly shows that there is something the Federal Government is not telling the people.

“What they are doing now is just blackmail and threat to see how they would weaken our members to go and enroll (on IPPIS). People who have not enrolled are not being paid; some people for eight months, some for three, going to four months. I have not been paid salary since July, while some people have not been paid since February.

“They have not paid us because of IPPIS. A few of the people that registered with IPPIS are being paid. But when they pay them, they don’t even get the full complement of their salaries; some of them claim that they get like N50,000, N60,000, and we are talking about senior lecturers and above.

“A professor told me that what he is getting is N100,000 (as monthly salary) and yet they want to put more people into that. But we have resolved that we will not succumb to this blackmail.”
