Strike: Why We Are Shutting Down Universities — SSANU

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, weekend said that it will soon shut down universities as a result of the inability of the federal government to honour the Memorandum of Action, MoA, it signed with the union.

SSANU said it has been reluctant to resume its suspended strike because of its effect on students, university education and the parents, regretting that the federal government was forcing the union to down tools.

This is as the universities non-teaching staff have said that they are ready to present to the federal government the Universities Peculiar Personnel Payroll System, U3PS, which is expected to replace the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS.

The National President of SSANU, Comrade Mohammed Ibrahim told journalists in Abuja that the U3PS was designed by professionals and that it captures all the peculiarities including payment for sabbatical, visiting lecturers etc.

Comrade Ibrahim said that the inconsistencies of the IPPIS which he claimed have caused untold hardship were still faced by non-teaching staff.
