IPPIS: “FG paid some professors N8,000 as salary” – ASUU president reveals

The face-off between the FG and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), doesn’t seem to be ending soon after the union made a startling revelation.

IPPIS_ FG paid some professors N8,000 as salary - ASUU president reveals

ASUU has maintained its position on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) of the Federal Government.

ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi blamed the payment platform for the alleged irregularities in the payment of salaries and allowances of lecturers. He also disclosed that some Professors received N8,000 as salaries.

Ogunyemi said;


“The issue of what we call amputated salary came into it because the IPPIS platform was not designed for the university system.

“So, the platform does not recognise negotiated agreements like we are talking about allowance – unacademic allowances, research journal, and other things.

“In fact, there were professors that were paid like N8,000 in some months on our campuses. So, we don’t expect anything otherwise because that platform was not meant for the university system.”


“I believe our students and their parents would understand.”

“If we have lecturers that have not been paid for eight, nine months, how can we have that person putting in his or her best in a system?

“If people are going back to the universities and they will be paid less of their usual salary, how can we cope with that?”
