ASUU Rejects Appointment, Promotion through IPPIS

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has rejected any appointment and promotions carried out under the Integrated Payment and Personnel Information System.

The Union has been on strike over failure of the government to fulfill agreement reached, in relation to revitalization of universities.

This was disclosed in a statement on Monday June 29, 2020 by ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi.

He stated that the Union would insist on the reversal of appointments and promotions during the strike. For failing to meet established norms and procedures for doing so.

ASUU also condemned some Vice-Chancellors who are promising online delivery they cannot defend.

According to Professor Ogunyemi, ASUU is happy when its members are promoted but not without following due process of academic elevation.

He also stated that appointment through the Illegal IPPIS by some Vice-chancellors will be reversed.

ASUU asked members not to fill any form or document sent to them through their Vice-Chancellors.

He alleged that some University Vice Chancellors were working with National Universities Commission (NUC) for ‘fake’ data collection.

“ASUU is working to ensure that lecturers who are yet to receive their salaries for four months get paid. While, also working tirelessly at getting new salaries and welfare packages commensurate with global standards for her members.

“It is against the ongoing struggle for any member to participate in any appointment during the time because it will fail all standard procedures.

“How many institutions can boast of functional institutional mail? How many of the institutions have functional Internet service? Some of them are behind the problems facing universities with corrupt behaviors,” Prof Ogunyemi said.

“ASUU wrote petitions to anti-corruption agencies on these VCs but got no results which make us believe they are working with the ruling class to destroy common patrimony. Employing under IPPIS while on strike is also an illegality.

“We will insist on the reversal of such appointments. Pursue our desire to get the best of University for our Children as well as the best welfare system for our members,” he added.
