The University of Ibadan (UI) chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has set up a monitoring committee to ensure that none of its members enroll in the Integrated Payment and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
The union announced the committee at a well-attended congress which was held at the Faculty of Arts of the institution.
The congress, which was presided over by Prof. Deji Omole, ASUU Chairman of UI, resolved to follow the directive of the national leadership of the union not to enlist on IPPIS.
ASUU had maintained its stand citing peculiarities and university act while the FG had maintained that none of her employees will be exempted for the enrollment.
In a resolution that was read by Prof. Peter Olapegba, Secretary of the union, the congress resolved to stop work in the event of a stoppage of the salary of academic staff.
“There is no threat to us as far as we are concerned. You can also observe that the congress was well attended by our members and they have complied with the position of ASUU leadership. We have also set up a monitoring committee to ensure full compliance,” Omole stated.
