The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has revealed why they cannot go back to the classrooms yet.

According to ASUU, they cant go back to the classroom on an empty stomach.

The union also advised the Federal Government should adopt its recently invented payment system for Universities.

ASUU also maintained that the Federal government payment system IPPIS, which was made mandatory to university workers, including ASUU members was against the law that granted autonomy to Universities.

The Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Calabar Zone, Dr. Aniekan Brown disclosed this while briefing newsmen on Monday in Calabar. The Union described IPPIS as a Cesspool of corruption that can lead to issues of national security due to the “unsafe” nature of the back end office where the database was domiciled in the United States of America.

They added that the integrity of the integrated payroll and personnel information system (IPPIS ) was the worse payment platforms describing it as a cesspool for corruption meant to impoverish university lecturers.

His words: “Our Union has been rejecting this IPPIS since 2013 and government challenged us to provide an alternative which the union did name UTAS, University Transparency Accountability Solution.

“Because of how IPPIS is operated and because it does not match the peculiarities of Nigerian universities and because the backend and front end does not really interface, Calabar Zone, insists that IPPIS is a cesspool of corruption.

“It is only attending to issues of payroll and has no control over personnel information, that alone is enough to reduce that platform and make it susceptible to various manipulations and corruption,” he said.
