Since the suspension of the 9 months strike on December 23, 2020, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has been on the radar on when Universities will resume academic activities.
However, on Monday, January 4, 2020 by 4pm, ASUU said: “School resumption date depends on your school”.
The union stated this on Twitter when asked by many students on “when will schools resume”.
PARADISE NEWS advises that students should be checking their institution’s online portals for the resumption date(s).
Meanwhile, two days ago, no fewer than 240 lecturers, including professors, at the University of Lagos, enrolled on the Integrated Personnel Payment Information System against the directive by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The affected lecturers have been sanctioned by the UNILAG chapter of ASUU.
The sanction is coming about one week after ASUU suspended its 9-month strike over the nonpayment of salaries of ASUU members who failed to enrol into IPPIS and other unfulfilled agreements between ASUU and successive administrations.
ASUU had opposed IPPIS used in settling workers’ salaries by FG and developed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution which is currently undergoing test-run by the National Information Technology Development Agency.
It also asked its members not to enrol on IPPIS, arguing that it was against the autonomy of universities among other reasons.
