At least 50 of the 153 members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Nigeria, Nsukka chapter, that enroled in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System in the institution were set to withdraw, an official has said.
Chairman of the chapter, Mr. Christian Opata, disclosed this in Nsukka on Wednesday while briefing newsmen shortly after the UNN-ASUU congress convened to brief members on the outcome of the National Executives Council meeting held recently in Minna, Niger State.
He said that, of the 153 enrolees, at least 50 had indicated interest to withdraw from the system, “since they registered out of misinformation.”
He said: “In this congress, I briefed members on NEC’s last meeting in Minna, where ASUU leadership insisted that IPPIS was illegal and a complete violation of university autonomy and agreement between government and ASUU.
“During this congress, 50 lecturers who have wrongly enroled said they would withdraw their enrolment in IPPIS immediately.”
The chairman said the congress agreed to publish the names of all the 153 lecturers who enrolled in IPPIS in UNN-ASUU notice board so that members will know them.
“ASUU-UNN will issue queries to these defaulting members as well as forward their names to national body for appropriate sanction.
