The National body of the Congress of University Academics (CONUA) over the weekend directed university lecturers who belong to the body to immediately commence enrolment on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) in compliance with the FG’s directive.
The body, which is a fraction of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), made it known that the decision to enrol on IPPIS, against the stand of ASUU, was reached at a meeting of CONUA Natioanl Steering Committee.
CONUA also made it known that the National Steering Committee had earlier held a meeting with the Minister of Finance and her team that had the Accountant-General of the Federation, the Director, IPPIS, and others on the 14th of Nov., 2019.
A statement signed by Dr. Niyi Sunmonu, CONUA National Coordinator, and Dr. Ernest Nwoke, National Publicity Coordinator, stated that the body agreed to enrol on the platform with the believe that the FG woulf fulfil its promise of prompt action on any issue that arose in the implementation of the policy.
“CONUA members are in full support of every policy and effort of government to reform the Nigerian public financial system with a view to combating corruption and thereby sanitising our educational system.
“That, in view of the foregoing, CONUA implores members to enrol on the IPPIS platform with a strong belief that government would reciprocate our good faith,” part of the statement reads.
