FG and ASUU disagree on payment system for allowances
FG and ASUU disagree on payment system for allowances of over 30 billion Naira in earned allowances across the years which are still unpaid
The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities have again disagreed on the payment system of allowances
This is the system which will be used in paying the salary arrears and the N30 billion earned allowance of university lecturers.
Recall that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige offered to pay the salary arrears and the N30 billion Earned Allowances of the university lecturers through the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System Payment system (IPPIS)
This happened at the meeting which ended in a deadlock on Wednesday October 22, 2020 ASUU delegation led by its National President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi
The national president had reportedly insisted that lecturers would not enrol on the government’s salary payment platform.
Although it is expected that both parties will reconvene on Monday October 26, 2020 to decide on the system for the disbursement of the funds pledged by the FG.
Recall that the federal government had agreed to pay N40 billion, being the pending Earned Academic Allowance of the university teachers overdue since November 2019.
And N30 billion would be paid on or before November 6, 2020 while the remaining N10 billion would be spread equally over two tranches to be paid in May 2021 and February 2022.
