    ASUU STRIKE: ASUU To Call Off Strike Next Week – Education Minister

    ASUU will call off strike next week, says Education Minister.

    Bennievibez gathered that the Minister of Education, Prof. Adamu Adamu, has stated that the ongoing industrial action embarked upon by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will be called off within the next one week.

    The minister made the exposure in Abuja while appearing before the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund.

    According to Adamu, the executive arm of government had commenced plans to ensure that it honors the agreement between the federal government and ASUU.

    The Chairman of the Committee, Senator Jibrin Barau, commended the Minister for efforts made by his Ministry so far towards ensuring that the situation is resolved and the strike action called off.

    He added that NITDA had only concluded the test on UTAS and U3PS but no result was announced.

     

    Mohammed disclosed that the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System test was ongoing.

     

    The IPPIS was described as a problematic payment platform by the unions in the higher institutions who all complained bitterly about its inconsistency and alleged it was an imported fraudulent platform.

     

    As such, due to IPPIS’ peculiarities and shortchanging of salaries, ASUU and SSANU created indigenous payment platforms, namely, UTAS and U3PS respectively.

     

    Mohammed said, ‘‘The results of the payment platforms as being rumored are not yet out. The committee has finished the UTAS and UP3 tests and they are now on IPPIS.

     

    Recall that the SSANUs strike started with a warning strike of two weeks which commenced on the midnight of Sunday 27th March 2021, while the attachment of another two weeks commenced on Sunday 10th April 2022 and it is still ongoing.

    Some of the demands of SSANU include the inconsistent issue of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel information system, unpaid made allowances, delay in the renegotiation of FGN, NASU, SSANU agreements, and non-payment of minimum wage arrears.

     

    Others include neglect and poor funding of state universities, non-payment of retirement benefits to outgoing members of the unions, and usurpation of the headship of non-teaching units in clear violation of conditions of service and structure procedures, among others.

     

    ASUU began its ongoing strike on February 14,  2022, after the Federal Government refused to meet some of its demands including, the release of revitalization funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers.
