Strike continues as ASUU, FG again disagree over UTAS

PublishedBy: in Education, Nigeria NewsOctober 29, 2020 -


Again, the meeting between the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the federal government has ended in deadlock, meaning that students and lecturers will have to wait as strike continues.


The meeting, which was held on Wednesday, October 28, hit the rock as both parties failed to reach a unilateral agreement on the adoption of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

had previously presented UTAS, which is its home-grown payment system, to the federal government in place of the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The body was expected to call off its strike and mandate lecturers to resume back to lecture rooms on Wednesday, October 21, after striking an agreement with the representatives of the federal government.

But in a sudden turn of event, the body said it would only end the strike action after its home-grown UTAS has passed the federal government’s integrity test.

However, a federal government team led by the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, refused that the N30billion earned allowance of the lecturers promised earlier be paid through a platform different from IPPIS.

chairman, Biodun Ogunyemi, also stood the ground that the payment should be made through UTAS.

Eventually, both sides agreed to consult their principals, with another meeting scheduled to hold next week Wednesday, November 4.
