IPPIS is Targetted at University Autonomy-ASUU
The Federal Government has been accused by the Academic Staff Union of universities (ASUU), of using the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS) to violate the self-governance of universities.
The Chairman of ASUU University of Port-Harcourt chapter, Dr. Austen Sado, speaking to the media explained that, the introduction of IPPIS to tertiary institutions was just a means of politically controlling universities.
Speaking further he stated that the platform, namely IPPIS, was not vigorous enough to handle the peculiarity of universities and some universities were losing their authority to employ lecturers because of their manipulation.
He added that, for universities to develop, they must be separated from civil service control and manipulation.
