Unilorin constitutes monitoring committee against IPPS
By our correspondent
The University of Ilorin chapter of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has constituted a monitoring committee to stop its members’ participation in the ongoing Integrated Personnel Payroll System (IPPS) which has commenced at the university, Daily Trust reported.
In a statement the ASUU chairperson at Unilorin, Professor Moyosore Ajao, debunked story that some of his colleagues participated in the exercise.
He however urged the members to remain resolute to the Congress’ decision not to have anything to do with the IPPIS until further directives are given by the National body.
According to him, the position of our Union on IPPIS has not changed. Adding that the union will succumb to forceful enrollment on IPPIS.
He said: “The struggle is not against integrity or fight against corruption but in defence of our autonomy and capturing of peculiarities of academics on the template.
“It might be the VIce Chancellor who is a political appointee that registered with them. We don’t have CONUA at UNILORIN. They are seeking relevant; they are dissidents.”
Ajao stated. While appealing to their members Ajao said,
He, however appealed to the members to consciously and continually be on guard as some sponsored elements from within and outside the Union are trying to distract the union from it’s noble objectives.
He added: “They will not succeed because our collective will and sincerity will see us through.
“Congress members should be aware that our branch, being strategic, is very key to those who wants to break our rank using various methods. There is no amount of intimidation that would make us surrender our collective decision to salvage the university system.”
