AS THE ding dong between federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over enrolment into Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is yet to abate, the umbrella body of teaching staff in the nation’s ivory towers is set to clampdown on lecturers who have been captured into the new policy.
Barring tactical shifts, lecturers who recently took part in the exercise may be queried by ASUU.
Chairman of UNN-ASUU, Christian Opata, disclosed this move yesterday while briefing newsmen in Nsukka.
Stating that UNN-ASUU agreed to publish names of all the 153 lecturers who enrolled in IPPIS, Opata added that lecturers who failed to withdraw their enrollment would be sanctioned with a query.
“In this congress, I briefed members on NEC’s last meeting in Minna, where ASUU leadership insisted that IPPIS is illegal and a complete violation of university autonomy and agreement between government and ASUU. During this congress, 50 lecturers, who have wrongly enrolled said they will withdraw their enrollment in IPPIS immediately.
ASUU-UNN will issue queries to these defaulting members as well as forward their names to national body for appropriate sanction. This is because ASUU national body said from the beginning that IPPIS enrollment is a complete violation of university autonomy and illegal,” Opata said.
It was gathered that at least 50 of the 153 members of ASUU-UNN who enrolled into IPPIS are set to withdraw on the basis that they registered out of misinformation.
