The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), University of Lagos Chapter, has alleged that the Federal Government is insincere with the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) as it claims that its members have not been paid since last November when they enrolled in the scheme.
The Acting Chairman, Comrade Olusola Sowumi said this at a meeting with the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe last Friday.
At the meeting which held at the school’s main auditorium, Sowumi said the union was uncomfortable with government’s implementation.
He said: “We have other issues that school cannot attend to which are the national issues. But concerning IPPIS, we are not comfortable with the way the government is handling the issue.
“They make us drive into things they are not grounded for and we actually went for the migration exercise in November thinking by December, they would pay as promised.”
“Till now, still no action on payment. It is disheartening. It shows the Federal Government is not sincere with us at all.”
“We had tried so many areas and avenue we could exploit for communication, but none had worked and given good feedbacks.”
“We needed to bridge the gap. We thought of a family meeting with the management of the institution to understand the reason for the gap and address other related issues. We found out negotiation was key in solving problems.”
