IPPIS: Presidency reveals why ASUU called off strike

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has claimed that the proposed strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), was “planned revenge over the closure of the cold room”.  The ‘cold room’ is allegedly a code name for the University of Lagos Staff Club, where lecturers take female students to have fun.

ASUU, had on Thursday, 31st October, suspended its proposed strike over Federal Government’s directive to enroll its members into the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System.

ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, explained that the union had decided to maintain status quo, pending further meetings.

Ogunyemi added that, “What we have been saying is that the reaction of our members will depend on what happens in the government. Our members will meet at the appropriate time to make appropriate decisions. The Senate has intervened in the matter and we are engaging the Senate, the Senate has appealed to us for now. When they pay other workers, they pay them also.”
