The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has insisted that there is no going back on its position on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) of the Federal Government.
ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, stressed that it was wrong to use the payment platform for university lecturers.
He blamed this for the alleged irregularities in the payment of salaries and allowances of lecturers, stressing that some academics received very poor remuneration in some cases.
The ASUU president stated that the IPPIS cannot work for the university system, especially in the area of taxation.
According to him, the government gave the lecturers a one-line salary scale which means taxed are being deducted from allowances and that is not the case with those in the civil service.
Professor Ogunyemi argued that the programme was designed for the civil service, adding that lecturers were losing as much as 50 to 70 percent of their salaries.
