The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said that one of the major issues that led to the lingering strike by the academic union concerning the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS), and the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, have been resolved.
ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke said the government has met with the UNION and he hopes the lecturers would go back to their lecture rooms today.
Meanwhile, Osodeke who spoke in an interview session on TV late yesterday, further highlighted how the government has not done enough to end the ongoing strike.
“The issue of IPPIS and UTAS has been put to rest. If the government agrees with us tomorrow, everything will be resolved,” he said.
“The issues of IPPIS and UTAS have been put to rest as agreed with the Chief of Staff, the Utas will be implemented.
“You see, if this government is serious, this strike will not last more than two weeks. The President directed the Minister of Education to finish within two weeks, now two weeks have passed and they didn’t come back,” he added.
