ASUU extends strike by eight weeks, threatens ‘suffocating and indefinite strike’

Breaking: ASUU Finally Decide Call To Off Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) extends its warning strike by eight weeks following their recent meeting on the fate of University students.

This comes after the union revealed that its proposed payment platform to Federal Government was deemed unfit and lacked integrity.

“The Federal Govt says the payment platform, UTAS, which was proposed by ASUU has failed the integrity test and cannot be adopted.

ASUU has been putting pressure for its own platform, the Universities Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) to be approved for paying lecturers instead of the old method which is the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

It is one of the reasons why the Union embarked on strike. A second test on UTAS is to be carried out this month,” the union revealed on Twitter some days ago.
