If ASUU, NASU & SSANU cannot accept IPPIS then let the strike continue till eternity...

IPPIS is a smart way of paying salaries and it is actually good for tranpaeency governance. Every sensible person should endorse and support it..

But eh, Buhari is still a disaster oh.. In fact IPPIS was introduced around 2007 before them BMCs will start claiming nonsense...


IPPIS is good but should capture university peculiarities.

This is what the Nigerian law say:

Besides ASUU, many Agencies of the federal government rejected IPPIS as a mode of Salary payment. The likes of NNPC, CBN, DPR, PPRA, PEF, PTI, NNRA, Nigeria Army, INEC etc.

They insisted that they have laudable and robust payroll system and that their peculiar Salary parameters would not fit into the proposed IPPIS. Today these agencies are comfortably left out of IPPIS trap. Prof IK Abdulsalam BUK

First, the IPPIS platform doesn't capture the allowances of the non-academic staff. Like for the technologists, hazard allowance, and earned allowance for others.

The accountant general said the agreed payment of this allowances with the unions was not documented with salary and wages commission and they will not pay until that is done. Well, the union showed agreement signed, AG refused. So this is a tactical approach to reduce their salary and reneged on the agreement of 2009. If FG says the content of the agreement should have been gazetted or documented with the salary and wages commission, why is ASUU not going through that process? They could even give the FG a deadline to ensure these payments are recognized and thus added to IPPIS, rather than throwing away the baby with the bath water.

Next, academics rejected the platform on the following reasons:
1. It is against the university autonomy act, which places the issue of renumeration on the university council not a central body because it was formerly with NUC. This is international standard. Also, they said no more visiting lecturers or sabbaticals, and external supervisors allowance. That institutions should use their IGR to make those payments invariably they are pushing for raise in school fees & sundry expenses. For example, imagine being asked to pay 200k to invite external supervisor to come evaluate undergraduate project, 500k for masters and 1m for PhD because they must do that before one graduates. Universities have always made use of GIFMIS for payments. They prepare the payroll and send to GIFMIS which deducts their accounts and credits whoever they put in. The major difference now is that IPPIS being a platform majorly for salaries will "validate" the content of whatever payroll you send to it. It will validate the authencity of the employee, the allowances to the paid etc. If university governing councils were already making use of an FG platform (GIFMIS) for payments before IPPIS, it rules out the point that it takes their autonomy away. Each university will still compute their payroll under IPPIS...i.e. to accommodate resignations etc. The only difference is that if your Payroll does not align with what's on IPPIS the payment will not go through.

2. The payment platform doesn't allow for a convenient tax system that academics enjoy previously rather tax is on gross pay.

3. The payment system makes it difficult for the university to handle payment for timely research activities, as it will be required for them to prepare memos that will have to first go to accountant general office for approvals before payment can be made. So exchange programs suffers timely response from the university. FG has different platforms and we are confusing / mixing issues. The platform being used before now is an FG platform called GIFMIS. The introduction of IPPIS doesn't mean GIFMIS will no longer be used. However, it will be restricted to payments for capital expenditure and operational expenses to vendors or third parties...that remains.

4. The payment system is faulted with several shortcomings such as underpayment, overpayment,over deductions etc. These can be fixed by getting the said allowances approved by the salaries and wages commission. I'm not sure who is meant to kick off these conversations with the said commission, but why is ASUU not exploring the route of pressuring the FG into following this due process it has laid out?

5. The payment system support corruption as names are being added in Abuja to universities payroll without any documentation in the university. This is doubtful as each MDA still prepares their payroll on a MoM and submits to IPPIS. IPPIS only makes payment as communicated by the MDA...however, even if this is true, an audit will reveal...ASUU can/should press for this audit as part of checks and balances.

There's more but I will stop here!!! However, there are more to this issues also beyond just the payment system.

I believe you are someone close to ASUU or involved in that system. If you're obliged to discuss objectively, I'd like see your response to the above points which is from my perspective as an outsider looking in.

Partly true actually. https://newsdigest.ng/business/2019/12/04/nnpc-are-not-ippis/

Many MDAs that are revenue generating are not on IPPIS which is even fine. The thinking from the article linked is they do not draw from the FG account, rather they generate revenues, deduct their expenses (i.e. salaries and ops expenses) and remit the remainder to the FG account.

This is completely different from what ASUU is trying to imply. FG Universities are a cost center, so ASUU can't expect to be treated differently from other MDAs that are cost centers to the FG.

First, your responses does not show you are an outsider, however, I'm willing for the objective discuss though to further clarify certain issues you raised.

Second, you aviod the second issue I raised on tax variations? Or you think it's not enough to reject the system? For your information sir, the previous tax system often times takes cognisant of teaching environment. How can I be paying same tax with someone in urban setting or what motivation do I have to leave my established university in an urban to a school in rural setting considering all off checks are the same??

Third, why should it be ASUU duty to drag the gazette of an the agreement? Why is it an issue now?

Fourth, if IPPIS is truly for salaries, why are they dictating to universities, whether to have visiting lecturers, sabbaticals and contract staff? Why? I don't know your definition of autonomy but mine is...verify whether the person exists, confirm if the person deserves to be paid but it's takes away my autonomy when you dictate to me that I should not have visiting, contract staff since you don't know what value they are to my institution.

Fifth, recruitment in the university system most especially when accreditation is approaching is usually fast and this may suffer given the time phase it will take IPPIS to capture a person for payment. I believe you know as an insider how corrupt you people in IPPIS are, most especially when invited to come for capturing and the corrupt demands that follows.

Sixth, I think it is also wrong for you to refer to payment of salaries and allowances to senior researchers as: payments for capital expenditure and operational expenses to vendors or third parties...that remains

The focus of the report is not on ASUU rather it is on NASU and SSANU who are the other unions in the Universities who are also not happy with IPPIS because of denied allowances!
The NASU and SSANU are behaving like a leper, who can not squeeze a milk but can throw away the milk. They are giving government an edge by not cooperating with ASUU on UTAS!

amerengues:
Hmm

We argue to gain more enlightenment and if in the process, we encounter superior arguments, we should accept it.

You made a valid point by referring to the ghost workers issue- we don’t want ghost workers that sap our resources struggling to go round.

ASUU went on strike before pandemic thus it wasn’t in the midst of pandemic; It wasn’t because of IPPIS that they started the strike; This same government agreed at a time that they are willing to looking into the alternative ASUU will present which is UTAS since it accommodates most of the peculiarities IPPIS is devoid of

eg Adjunct lecturers (Hardly will you see any department/faculty with adjunct Lecturers from the industry). An engineering faculty with a course on Engineering law (just an illustration)may borrow lecturers. Also, those presently on IPPIS in other ministry have started complaining of the irregularities because I have a colleague who complained recently.

To rectify issues, you might need to travel to Abuja (Security, finance, stress, not meeting them on seat and telling you to come tomorrow), why hasn’t the Government decentralized this IPPIS. A friend has been advised to travel to Abuja recently.

We are quick to forget that this strike is premised on the follow up on previous agreement the government has successfully renegaded on without no commitment to do anything significant. IPPIS main issue came up when the stopped salary in which strike was on before the focus shifted to IPPIS.

Again, I ask, students have never supported revitalization and adequate funding and we are quick to condemn some persons who wants that. Government really fears the students’ protest but unfortunately they don’t protest for better education or support the struggle since we all want to quickly graduate. Those schools abroad get huge fundings for education. If you perceive that there is a misappropriation in university system, why not wade in and be in charge of fixing the infrastructure and revitalization fee and leave the school administrators out of the process- come and build and innovative rickety libraries.

Remember that anything Government is continuous and not only must you fulfill the promises but build on it. Again, this struggle was before so many of us are born, why are we still in this state. Please kindly do your research on how much Graduate assistants and Assistant lecturers earn.

Recently, they retain best students to lecture but after seeing how decayed the system is coupled will a paltry salary of 105k for some school lecturers, they accept offers from universities abroad and the system weakens further. Government only focuses on the propaganda of 10,000 lecturers as Prof whereas the bulk are in the very lower cadre who will print, publish articles, fix their offices with their money especially for those who could never sell handouts as a university rule. They are left with only meager salaries. I will stop here.


However, the challenge with ASUU is their penchant for shouldering all the requests needed for school revitalization. If ASUU focuses on the welfare of the members alone (which in hard fact, not possible though since university structures and infrastructure isn’t alien to ASUU’ operations), the strike won’t be incessant. If the students and parents don’t ask for better education, leave them to it. You can’t be fighting for people who don’t understand you.

If any ASUU member is found erring for misappropriation , prosecute them instantly but we forget that ASUU is academic and not always at the helm of affairs of most administrative activities of some universities and how some of it sef is being used are not even known to them. ASUU isn’t asking for increase in the poor salaries as highlighted. Till now no minimum wage has been paid.

All we want is a balanced view. So pathetic that this struggle has been on for ages. If only, if only they fix it once, Government would be able to brag one day.

Note: ASUU isn’t asking for salary increase despite meager salary.

ASUU hasn’t been paid #1 out of the audio minimum wage

The bulk of lecturers are in the lower cadre hence only few could attempt teaching somewhere else. Don’t be driven by propaganda

Note that most of the students will loose studentship if their schools looses accreditation due to shortage of having some senior lecturers (Gradual plans to recruit is feasible)

Note that there are condemned to poor salary structure after so many degrees yet no increment- it is as bad as 3,000-4000 annual increment in some institutions.

Before you judge, take both view into cognizance. It’s unfortunate that the students are bearing the brunt in this struggle.


We understand everything you are saying in a normal setting but ASUU sometimes demonstrate their greed openly. Compare ASUU welfare to other sectors aside from government appointees whose pays are shortlived, and you will agree that they are greedy. What do they do that Teachers at secondary and primary school level are not doing?
If 2009 agreements that ASUU seldom use to blackmail FG is that feasible, the meek Yar'Adua or Jonathan would have done it.
I had a lecturer that is shivering now because of IPPIS due to his multiple salary entries. He used to be a very effective lecturer back then when I was an undergraduate. But now that he has four solid employments in four places, he only employs his students to do most of his works. he is And this ought to be legally meant for the young agile graduates he uses. This is the case with many lecturers.

ejibaba:


First, your responses does not show you are an outsider, however, I'm willing for the objective discuss though to further clarify certain issues you raised. I actually am...just a well-read one.

Second, you aviod the second issue I raised on tax variations? Or you think it's not enough to reject the system? For your information sir, the previous tax system often times takes cognisant of teaching environment. How can I be paying same tax with someone in urban setting or what motivation do I have to leave my established university in an urban to a school in rural setting considering all off checks are the same??

My response as well...not sure why the next paragraph is not in bold.

[b] I have no idea how taxation works in the govt. sector. But in private co's, everyone is under the PAYE (I will presume this law governs governments as well) tax. I had mentioned how individual university ASUUs had gotten agreements with state governments for a tax relief. My opinion is that the government disagrees that it is lawful to obtain a tax relief which is why they are placing everyone according to the default PAYE deductions (my assumption again). I know that in the private sector, taxes are the same whether you work in the bush or in an urban area. The only times you might see a different is working with an Oil & Gas firm or an OEM (i.e. Oracle, Microsoft), you often get taxed at higher rates compared to working with a one-man company. The difference can be as high as 35% tax at O&G firms and 20% at private firms. Then again, is there a legal framework for ASUU's previous agreements on tax reliefs? If the answer is no, then Govt has a point, if the answer is Yes, then ASUU is right. This is a case you guys can actually take to the courts I believe. [/b]


Third, why should it be ASUU duty to drag the gazette of an the agreement? Why is it an issue now? No idea. My point here was more around getting / giving the government an ultimatum / negotiating within its own established framework rather than what they are doing now with a president who doesn't listen. If the government says this is the way to go (i.e. get the salaries and wages commission to gazette the said allowances, give the government a 30-day ultimatum to get these wages gazetted and included in IPPIS.

Fourth, if IPPIS is truly for salaries, why are they dictating to universities, whether to have visiting lecturers, sabbaticals and contract staff? Why? I don't know your definition of autonomy but mine is...verify whether the person exists, confirm if the person deserves to be paid but it's takes away my autonomy when you dictate to me that I should not have visiting, contract staff since you don't know what value they are to my institution. if this is true then it's a valid argument you make. I'm just hearing this for the first time actually. I'm not sure on what legal grounds IPPIS can dictate recruitment needs provided the individual university is not exceeding their approved budget - especially for contract staff. I don't have enough info plus it seems there is a lot of politics around the issue of visiting lecturer and sabbaticals so I'll leave that out for now, however, universities shouldn't be restricted from hiring.

Fifth, recruitment in the university system most especially when accreditation is approaching is usually fast and this may suffer given the time phase it will take IPPIS to capture a person for payment. I believe you know as an insider how corrupt you people in IPPIS are, most especially when invited to come for capturing and the corrupt demands that follows. I can't refute any of this. 100% valid concerns...I believe these can be sorted out through negotiations. Why does IPPIS need to come and physically capture ppl? I work in the software industry and just as JAMB enables registration remotely, IPPIS can enable such arrangement as well....the most important thing is that BVN and Biometrics are captured and supporting documents are uploaded. Someone can verify and validate on the admin panel in Abuja or from wherever.

Sixth, I think it is also wrong for you to refer to payment of salaries and allowances to senior researchers as: payments for capital expenditure and operational expenses to vendors or third parties...that remains I think you misread my comments here. By Capex and Opex I meant things such as renovations, buying furniture, fueling campus shuttles and other any expenses the universities may want to embark on..these are currently done through the GIFMIS platform.


Seven, I want to ask again that you pls, state you view on this disadvantage of this system that I pointed out that you delibrately avoided: The payment platform doesn't allow for a convenient tax system that academics enjoy previously rather tax is on gross pay. I had actually mentioned the tax variance issue in my earlier post on this thread..so my omission is just that rather than being deliberate.

Thank you. I await your response.

Anyways..thanks once again for the civility in your response....a rarity on NL which is why i don't bother commenting here much.

One more question though, if you can shed some light. Since these issues are mostly administrative, why are the Vice Chancellors and Governing councils not involved in this fight with the FG. ASUU should rightly be pushing from a position of it affecting their take home pay...but I expect the association of VCs if there is one to be the ones pushing the issues around visiting lecturers, sabbatical, limits on recruitment etc. It appears they've taken a back sit.
