Payroll controversy: ASUU meets with NASS leadership
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will on Monday (today) meet with the leadership of the National Assembly (NASS) as part of its battle against the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
TheNewsGuru (TNG) gathers that the meeting will centre on the ongoing face-off between ASUU and the Federal Government over the IPPIS saga.
President Muhammadu Buhari, had during the 2020 budget presentation at the National Assembly on October 8 ordered that all public sector workers must register for the IPPIS to save cost and fight corruption by blocking leakages in the Federal Government’s salary payment structure.
But ASUU had last week opposed the President’s directive, saying the IPPIS negated the law on university autonomy.
