Why we haven’t called off strike –ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, said it has yet to call off its ongoing strike because it is waiting for the government to conduct an integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS.

The UTAS is the payment platform created by ASUU in place of government’s Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS.

ASSU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi in an interview with correspondents, said the government needed to give the clearance to National Information Technology Development Agency to conduct integrity test on UTAS.

Ogunyemi also explained that ASUU was ready to resume academic activities if the government was ready to play its part.

“As far as we are concerned, we don’t have issue with going back to work, but we want more sincerity on the side of government”, he said.
