Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Federal University, Dutsin-ma did not enrol into the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) since when it started yesterday, Katsina Post can authoritatively report.
The Federal Government had directed that workers at its universities and colleges of education across the country enrol into the new payroll.
One of the members of the monitoring and enforcement committee raised by the union to ensure compliance in the university, Comr Ibrahim Bature told this reporter that none of their members enrolled.
Recall that The Nation Newspaper earlier reported that the ASUU Chairman at the Federal University Dutsinma (FUDMA), Yahaya Ahmed Mohammed, said the union may go on strike if the Federal Government failed to accept the alternative template the union proposed to resolve the IPPIS matter.
He said: “The national leadership of the union is working hard to come up with an alternative template policy on the IPPIS regime and will soon make presentations to the Federal Government.”
However, the Federal College of Education (FCE), Katsina Senior Staff Union of Colleges of Education (SSUCOE) Chairman Aminu Abdullahi Dutsinma said the union had resolved to enrol into the IPPIS.
