IPPIS: Buhari is becoming dictatorial - ASUU alleges

- The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reacted to the federal government's order on Integrated Personnel Payroll and Information System (IPPIS)

- The chairman of ASUU in the University of Ibadan, Deji Omole, said the government's directive for members of the union to take part in the system is dictatorial

- Omole accused the federal government of being afraid of negotiation which is obtainable in a democratic setting

President Muhammadu Buhari's directive that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) be compulsorily enrolled in the Integrated Personnel Payroll and Information System (IPPIS) has been described as dictatorial by the chairman of the union in the University of Ibadan, Professor Deji Omole.

Omole said that the order that members of ASUU should move to campuses so as to begin enrolment in the IPPIS is a mindless disregard for the law on the part of the federal government in a democratic setting as Nigeria.

He said that the union cannot be subdued by persons who are bent on breaking the laws of the country, adding that it is worrisome that the federal government is afraid of negotiating with ASUU.

Omole said: “The government’s pronouncement to forcefully enrol university workers is an act of violence against the university system. It is worrisome for a government under a democratic dispensation to resort to force rather than dialogue.

"Let the government come back to negotiation’s table and let’s discuss the grey areas. Forceful enlistment will not solve the problem."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported earlier that ASUU revealed why it rejected the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System initiated by the federal government.

The chairman of the union in Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Professor Rabi’u Nasiru, on Monday, November 4, said that ASUU opposed the system in an effort to save public higher institutions from collapsing.
