The Benin University chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has refused to register for the Integrated Pay and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) at the direction of the Nigerian federal government.
In response to yesterday's policy, the head of UNIBEN-ASUU, Dr. Joy Omoregie, and the secretary, Fabian Amaechina, said it was appalling that the federal government would force federal university staff to register for IPPIS.
Dr. Omoregie said it was necessary to call on members to go on a nationwide strike if a union member fell victim to refusing to log on to the IPPIS platform.
The UNIBEN ASUU would abide fully if the ASUU were forced to declare a nationwide strike if the federal government did not fully implement an aspect of both the agreement and the MoA achieved in 2009.
"In particular, we note that the government plans to abandon the overdue renegotiation of the ASUU-FGN 2009 agreement and not fully comply with the February 2019 Memorandum of Action (MoA) freely signed with the ASUU," he said.
"And for the umpteenth time, we repeat our clear rejection of IPPIS and vow that no amount of threat or extortion will affect our determination."
