ASUU strike: no conclusion however on UTAS - Adamu Adamu


The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, says a payment platform, one of the issues of contention in the protracted strike by members of the Academic Staff Union Universities, ASUU, has not yet been approved.

Adamu disclosed this yesterday while answering questions on Channels TV.

It would be recalled that ASUU had demanded that its members be switched from the IPPIS payment platform to the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) provided by the union.

Adamu said the decision on whether or not to approve the payment platform rests with President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

"The president is currently waiting for the technical committee report on the three payment platforms. I have seen one of the reports but not the final report. From what I have seen, the U3PS is probably the best, followed by UTAS and IPPIS," he said.

According to him, the increase in salaries of university lecturers and other tertiary institutions such as polytechnics and colleges of education will not start immediately, but in January next year.


On the "no work no pay" policy, Adamu said the federal government is not willing to change its decision.

"I don't think the government will reverse its decision. It is not just the payment of the salary that should motivate them to return. There are many things that can motivate them to return to the classrooms," he said.
