Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Modibbo Adama University of Technology, (MAUTECH) Yola, said its members have resolved not to be part of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
Making the disclosure, the university’s branch chairman of ASUU, Dr Sadiq Umar, told newsmen during a press conference in Yola that the resolution was reached at the last emergency congress meeting of the union.
Umar said there are issues concerning the IPPIS implementation yet to be addressed by the federal government, and that the implementation of the program will affect the autonomy of the institution.
He said, “The implementation of IPPIS would disrupt university hierarchy and system. The IPPIS if put in place, will make running of the university system a one man show.”
He stressed that responsibilities of the university hierarchy would be taken away from them.
The university don, along with the IPPIS monitoring team, urged government to maintain the status quo.
“Let governing council oversee the management, funds, promotion and employment of staff in the university.
“This chapter of ASUU strongly condemns moves where the office of the Accountant General of the Federation would be the governing council of universities,” Umar added.
