Obinwannem News FG is wasting the future of Nigeria - Uzor

The Zonal Coordinator of the leadership of Academic Staff Union of Nigeria, ASUU in Owerri Zone, Comrade Uzor Onyebinama lambasts Federal Government, says they are idling away the time and wasting the future of Nigeria, leaving the current crisis to worsen.

According to him “The Integrated Payroll and Personel Information System, IPPIS, has become an obnoxious instrument for stripping the governing councils of universities of their powers, responsibilities, as well as removing the hard-won autonomies of universities.”

“The issue of autonomy is critical to the survival of our universities, as institutions for intellectual freedom and development of our dear country.”

“In the light of the provisions, the purported directive of Mr. President and the subsequent circulars to the Vice-Chancellors on enrolment on IPPIS, the compulsory migration of academic staff to IPPIS, using the seizure of salaries as a hunger weapon.”

“The compulsory change of effective date of annual salary increment of salaries of academic staff, from October 1 to January 1, are, by this provision, illegal, null and void.”

”We challenge the Accountant General of the Federation to, as a matter of urgent national importance, release with immediate effect, the names and amounts previously paid to each and every one of the over 60,000 ghost workers, eliminated as at 2014, and subsequently, and also show evidence of recovery and prosecution of the ghost workers.” He stated.
