ASUU Vows To Resist FG Use Of National Housing Fund Forms To Coerce Members Into IPPIS Registration

BY DAYO ADESULU
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has vowed to resist the antics of the Federal Government to coerce its members to migrate into the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information (IPPIS) by signing the National Housing Fund (NHF) forms.

It President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi said: ”The NSCC has uncovered plots by IPPIS merchants and agents of the government to use forms for the  National Housing Fund (NHF) to commence another round of push to forcefully enrol members of ASUU in the IPPIS. ”Do not fill any form whatsoever unless the NSCC so direct,” he warned members.
Ogunyemi who spoke through bulletin no 8  to all ASUU members said ASUU’s principled rejection of IPPIS as being irrelevant and unworkable in the university system has been vindicated by the proven inefficiency as well as the proven corruptive character of the platform.
According to him, the only way the servile garb it tries to put on their members can be stopped is through the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
”We can only achieve our goal of salvaging the Nigerian University System if we remain resolute and committed to the ongoing struggle,” he added.
His words: ”The current struggle to get Government to address issues of revitalisation fund, EAA, visitation to universities, the proliferation of state universities and issues of governance in them, and conclusion of the renegotiation of the 2009 FGN-ASUU Agreement which is outstanding in the 7th February 2019
Memorandum of Action (MoA) has entered it’s 12 the week.
” Against all odds, our members and their families have remained resolute. This is an expression of their commitment to the union’s patriotic struggle to rescue Nigeria’s education system. NSCC commends this act of patriotism.
”Our collective resolve is beginning to yield some positive results. However, we are still far from achieving our goals. As the saying goes, there are still many rivers to cross! Our patriotic convictions should carry us through, till victory.
”In strike Bulletin No 7, it was stated that “We shall ensure that not a kobo owed to, or unjustly taken
from, any ASUU member is lost to IPPIS.” Therefore, no member should resort to self-help. Individual members should NOT go to the Bursary or university administration on any of these and related issues without clearance with the Branch Leadership. The National Leadership is working with the branches to ensure that issues related to forceful migration to IPPIS as well as amputated and outstanding salaries are speedily resolved.
”Following the colossal failure of IPPIS deployment in processing the salaries of academic staff, the
IPPIS zealots are now making desperate moves to justify the deliberate distortions made to the salaries of members. This is totally unacceptable!
”The NSCC has uncovered plots by IPPIS merchants and agents of the government to use forms for the
National Housing Fund (NHF) to commence another round of push to forcefully enrol members of
ASUU in the IPPIS. Do not fill any form whatsoever, unless the NSCC so direct.
” ASUU’s principled rejection of IPPIS as being irrelevant and unworkable in the university system has
been vindicated by the proven inefficiency as well as the proven corruptive character of the platform. The
only way the servile garb it tries to put on our members can be stopped is through the deployment of the
University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS). We can only achieve our goal of
salvaging the Nigerian University System if we remain resolute and committed to the ongoing struggle.
” The fight against the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic is more crucial now than ever. The NSCC
encourages further participation in COVID-19 field and hospital work, research and innovations.
”No State University Branch of the Union shall meet with its Visitor without the permission of NSCC
through Comrade President.
”Disregard any unverified media information about the Union or its struggle. Cross-circulation of
unauthenticated information by social media platforms or other means shall be sanctioned!
”Chairpersons and all other EXCO members shall not attend or respond to invitations to meetings on
matters affecting the Union without clearance with their Zonal Coordinators.
”Without the Senate’s approval, a Vice-Chancellor has no power to change the mode of lecture delivery.
Therefore, do not obey any Vice-Chancellor’s call for online teaching under whatever guise.
It is a blatant violation of the university laws. It is in the interest of our universities, our students, and our nation to resist any attempt to undermine the ongoing struggle.”
