The Academic Staff Union of the Universities (ASUU) has come under attack as the federal government described the condition set by the body before it can end its strike as "unreasonable." It would be recalled that ASUU said it would end the strike action after its home-grown University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) had passed the federal government's integrity test. 

 

Speaking in an interview with The Punch, the association's national leader and president, Professor Bidoun Ogunyemi, gave the assurance with questions popping up on when the lecturers will resume back to classrooms. 

 

ASUU was expected to call off its strike and mandate lecturers to resume back to lecture rooms on Wednesday, October 21, after striking a unilateral agreement with the representatives of the federal government.

But Ogunyemi said UTAS, which is a payment system developed by ASUU in place of the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), is still going through an integrity test handled by NITDA. Reacting to ASUU's stance, spokesperson for the Ministry of Education, Ben Goong, said ASUU's demand is ridiculous because varsity lecturers cannot determine how they should be paid by their employers which is the federal government.

"I don't know whether you know how many groups, organisations and associations receive a salary from the federal account. So, if everybody is doing their own platform, imagine how many payment platforms the government will have to deal with it."
