The Federal Government of Nigeria led by General Muhammadu Buhari gave out a
broadcast at the beginning of this year, January, stating the effect of people not enrolled on
the IPPIS payroll will not be paid from January.
Unfortunately, the Federal Government seems to be lenient till this period for workers that
ain’t on the IPPIS system. The Association of Students union of Universities stated that
they will be on a two weeks warning strike.
It’s National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, announced this at end of the National
Executive Council meeting (NEC) held at the Enugu State University of Science and
Technology (ESUT) some moments ago.
Dr. Ogunyemi stated that the strike action was to compel and solicit with the Federal
government to implement the agreements and resolutions of Memorandum of Action
discussed in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding
(MOU) and the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoU), all of which have not been
implemented ever since.
ASUU has been on this issue quite a long time and every administration of the government
has been turning deaf ears to their plea and requests.
