ASUU, Academic Staff Union of Universities has stated the reasons why they won’t call off strike.
The Coordinator of the Calabar Zone of ASUU, Dr. Aniekan Brown said the industrial action would continue as long as the government insists on the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System, IPPIS.
Addressing journalists yesterday in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, Brown described IPPIS as a cesspool of corruption.
He also dismissed claims by the Government that 71,000 ASUU members had already accepted to register with the IPPIS.
Describing the claim as incorrect, Brown insisted that such was a distraction to the academic body.

He said: “The distraction known as IPPIS is a cesspool of corruption and Federal Government’s illicit commitment, hard-work, determination and treachery to forcibly migrate employees of Federal universities to the IPPIS platform.
“Government’s claim is not true. We challenge the authorities to the fact that we are not up to 71,000 members. The Minister for Finance, Budget and National Planning had earlier said 71,000 members of ASUU had accepted to register on the IPPIS platform. So, the Government’s statistics are faulty and mere propaganda.
