ASUU exempted from IPPIS as FG raises allowances, revitalization fund to N60bn

After weeks of negotiations and foot-dragging, the Federal Government on Friday granted the request of the Academic Staff Union of Universities to be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

FG also acceded to ASUU’s other demands, including the refusal that all the academic staff of Federal universities must be paid through the IPPIS platform.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, who read the communique at the end of a seven-hour negotiation with ASUU in Abuja, said the government also agreed to ASUU’s demand to pay their members’ salary arrears from February to June through the old salary payment platform, Government Integrated Financial and Management Information System.
