ASUU Strike: Integrity Test On UTAS To Last 8 Weeks — Ngige by khingTony(m): 1:29am On Nov 18
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on Tuesday, said the integrity test being conducted on the software of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution being proposed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities would take between six and eight months to be completed.

ASUU is currently on strike in protest against the Federal Government’s Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

In its stead, the union proposed UTAS as an alternative.

Speaking with State House correspondents after a meeting he had with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Ngige said the Nigeria Information Technology Development Agency was conducting the integrity test on the software.

The minister however said while the software was available, there was no hardware to back it up.

He claimed that if the software passed the integrity test being conducted by NITDA, the university teachers do not have the needed fund to procure the necessary hardware for its implementation.

He explained that the Federal Government did not make provision for the procurement of the UTAS hardware in the budget.

He said the decision to send the UTAS software to NITDA for integrity test was based on the fact that the Federal Government will not want to discourage anybody or group from providing homegrown solutions to issues.

He explained further, “The UTAS, that is the University Transparent System which they brought, is not yet ready.

“It is not fully ready, it is undergoing an integrity test for the software. I am not a computer scientist, but you must also know that you must test the hardware and the integrity test for the software.

“As we speak, ASUU has no hardware and UTAS does not have hardware backing.

“I am waiting for the NITDA’s full report but the preliminary report they gave me, the software integrity test will take them about six to eight weeks and thereafter, we go to the hardware.

“But the big issue is, who will provide the hardware?

“ASUU does not have the finances to do so. Has the government budgeted for it now as we speak? So, that one is a major problem. But we don’t have to dissuade anybody, we don’t have to tell anybody not to carry on, we like local content development, we need our things to be home grown. So, we are really encouraging them.”

Everything is about politics in this country, even lives, future, destiny of the common Nigerian youths.

Playing dice or gambling with the future of Nigerian youths thinking your own children have a secured future living and studying abroad is left for God to decide... it's a pity

Why are they so reluctant on resolving this ASUU situation? IPPIS is terrible yet they want to continue with the process instead of modifying the system.

I went to my local Electricity Distribution Company to settle my electricity bill, I was told it was N10,000:00.

I gave the lady 100 naira and asked for a receipt. The following day I again paid 100 naira and asked for a receipt.

I did this for 10 consecutive days until the PHCN people called me aside and in anger asked "Do you know how irritating it is for us to give you receipts of just 100 naira daily? Why not just give us the whole of your balance?"

I laughed and replied "That is exactly how it feels when you give me power for only 1 hour every day."....

'Federal government' pay these people let these children go back to school.


The things deliberated on this country shouldn't even be heard of.

Schools have been on strike for over 8 months and these people are still arguing?

Dis strike no get end be dat.

Until a law is made that all wards and children of political office holders should school in Nigeria Public Institutions only, there's no Ed in sight to ASUU strike.
