Asuu seek to adopt UTAS in other to end strike
Asuu, seeks to adopt utas in other to end the strike. The academic staff union of universities <ASUU> has called for the adoption of the university transparency and accountability solution <UTAS> in the country.
The Kano Zonal Coordinator of the association, MR Mahmud Lawan made this call in a statement issued in Kano on Thursday, at the end of its meeting held at the Federal University, Dutse.
The news agency of Nigeria [NAN], reports that the federal governments had directed university lecturers to enroll on the integrated payroll and personal information system <IPPIS>.
The union, however, rejected <IPPIS> insisting that it violated the university autonomy, and proposed UTAS as an alternative to the IPPIS.
Lawan said that the union expressed dismay over the non-payment of salaries of their members and that they should stop playing politics with the ongoing industrial strike.
The misinformation regarding payments of salaries by the government officials is disheartening and loaded with mischief to discredit the noble course of ASUU and its members, MR Lawan said in the statement.
The statement persuades the federal government to lunch an investigation into the matter, noting that payments of salaries to its members were suspended in the past three months.
It also called for the provision of a reactivation fund, completion of renegotiation exercise, and adoption of UTAS, to end the ASUU Strike.
