The Senate has intervened between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) saga, saying that the Government should not go into any agreement it cannot implement.
According to the Senate, it was disturbing and worrisome that the Federal Government will sign agreements it knows are difficult and sometimes impossible to implement
Speaking on Monday in Abuja when the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) led by its President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi visited him in his office, President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan who pleaded that both the government and ASUU should in the interest of the students who are always the victims, ensure that it is a give and take situation.
Lawan who urged ASUU members to be prepared to sheathe the sword to end the ongoing strike for students to go back to class said that the situation is not healthy for the country tertiary institutions.
He noted that the meeting was to enable the National Assembly to intervene in the ongoing disagreement between the government and the university governing body to put an end to the strike.
