According to report reaching oyogist.com, Academic Staff Union of Universities has again blamed the Nigerian Government for the prolonged strike embarked upon by lecturers in the country.
Oyogist.com gathered that Prof Abiodun Ogunyemi, ASUU National President, reiterated this on Monday, while speaking with channels TV.
He said “What we need is a commitment; there is nothing like transition and what we are saying, in essence, is that government should just go ahead and pay what government has withheld – the salaries of our members; people have not been paid for eight or nine months on account of not registering on IPPIS.
“Government should stop this arm-twisting and manipulation, going back to universities to ask them to go and enroll in IPPIS so that they will go and migrate to UTAS; people see it as a game of deception and we cannot trust them.
“Each time people talk about this problem has been there for long, they don’t also appreciate the solution we have brought to the system to keep the system going,”
