The Chairman of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi has urged the Nigerian student to corporate with the body.

The chairman made the plea earlier on Monday via Official ASUU account on Twitter.

The tweet read; “Students who are our children and partners in progress should show understanding, what we are asking from the government are in their interest and the interest of the nation, good hostel accommodation, good classroom blocks that can engender effective learning laboratories where cutting edge research can be carried out and offices that can drive the process of quality university education.

“So what we are asking of the government are not baseless things, but those things that in 2012, the government conducted during a needs assessment survey and found out that there are widespread rot and decay in the university system.”

It must be recalled, before the lockdown to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, that led to the closure of all schools nationwide, ASUU had declared an indefinite strike to protest the stoppage of their salaries and the order for the enrolment of its members into the IPPIS.

Meanwhile, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has formally written to the federal government, requesting a date for the reopening of negotiations, which were abandoned in February due to the disagreement over the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The union also urged the federal government to initiate a process that would lead to the validation of its alternative salary payment platform, the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

It demanded that the government should pull out all academic staff already captured on IPPIS and enrol them on UTAS.
