The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday issued a statement of intent to the Federal Government of Nigeria regarding the ongoing strike action by the Union.
It’s been two months since students were sent home because of the strike but the negotiations between the Federal Government and the Union have seen no positive response.
ASUU made a 200 billion Naira demand from the Federal Government before lecturers can return to classrooms, but the Government is saying the demand is on a high side.
One of their proposals to the Federal Government is that the proposed Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information (IPPIS) be abolished and the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) be deployed for University Staff.
The Government is yet to comment on that but insists that the 200 billion Naira demand cannot be met at once, hence a continuous wait for fruitful negotiation pending when it comes up.
