The Universities' Academic Staff Union (ASUU) on Monday said any appointments and promotions made under the Integrated Payment and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) are illegal.

The Union has been striking over the government's failure to fulfil the agreement reached with respect to revitalization funding of varieties, earned academic allowances, public school visitation panel, university proliferation, and their governance and conclusion of 2009 FGN-ASUU renegotiation agreement.

In a strike Bulletin 10 signed by ASUU President Professor Biodun Ogunyemi and published by Union Chapter Chairman of Ibadan University, Professor Ayo Akinwole, ASUU maintained that it would insist on the reversal of appointments and promotions during the strike for failing to comply with existing standards and procedures.

Also, the Union lashed out at some Vice-Chancellors who promise online delivery that they can not defend.

According to Professor Akinwole, ASUU is pleased when its leaders are elevated but not without proper academic elevation procedure followed.

He also stated that some Vice-Chancellors will reverse appointment through the Illegal IPPIS.

ASUU also asked members not to fill out any form or document sent to them by their Vice-Chancellors alleging that some University Vice-Chancellors worked with the National Universities Commission (NUC) to collect 'fake' data.

Akinwole said the Union was trying to ensure that lecturers who have yet to collect their salaries for four months are compensated while also trying hard to secure new wages and welfare packages in line with their members' global expectations.

“It is against the ongoing struggle for any member to participate in any appointment during the time because it will fail all standard procedures. How many institutions can boast of functional institutional mail? How many of the institutions have functional Internet service? Some of them are behind the problems facing universities with corrupt behaviours.

“ASUU wrote petitions to anti-corruption agencies on these VCs but got no results which make us believe they are working with the ruling class to destroy common patrimony. Employing under IPPIS while on strike is also illegality.

“We will insist on the reversal of such appointments. We shall pursue our desire to get the best of University for our Children as well as the best welfare system for our members”
