|Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 2:44pm On Jun 20|
ASUU went on strike on February 14, putting an halt to all academic activities since the past 4 months because of an agreement made in the year 2009
Agreement should be honored (I agree)
But from my calculations, Late Musa Yard Adua was president when they made this agreement, in which Fmr president Good luck Jonathan was Vice president
Vice president Good luck Jonathan went on to succeed Yar Adua after his death....
My question is why did ASUU not push their core demands when we had a PHD holder as president?
Why did they not go on endless strike when we had someone that's well vast educationally?
Why did ASUU wait until 13 years after before pushing for their demands to be heard?
What happened to going on this endless strike when President Muhammad Buhari was running for 2nd term?
What makes them think the government will priotize their demands when they clearly have nothing to lose or gain from their endless strike?
So far the government has paid them 36 billion for their salary arrears, and have promised to look into revisitation of the Nigeria university so it can be of high standards when compared to international Universities.
The government "which has nothing to lose" has tried enough. Why has ASUU not call off the strike? They want UTAS!
Why will an employer be dictating their means of payment to their employee? (It does not make any sense as far as they are not been underpaid)
The government is paying the engineering, health, military, and other sectors through the IPPIS, and nobody is complaining except ASUU
Will talk about UTAS and why ASUU want it so badly in my next post...

ASUU went on strike for 6 months during Jonathan's time.
Stop posting this buffoonery everywhere with your terrible writeup.
Embarrassing piece of trash.

ASUU went on 6 months strike in the year 2013 during Jonathan's time if I'm not mistaken.
That is 4 years after the agreement was made
Why did they not stick with the idea of this endless strike back then?
Why is ASUU punishing poor Nigeria students because of a stupid agreement made in 2009 (Since you want to be insultive)

Did the author go to school at all?
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Raymondfayowole(m): 5:59pm On Jun 20|
But you agreed they paid the minimum wage arrears because of the strike right? Did you think that money came out from nowhere...The entire system is corrupt, both ASUU and FG are not saints...it's just sad that the students are recipients.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 6:29pm On Jun 20|
How is it scam Oga?
Are they not getting their complete salary with IPPIS?
Are the the uniform men, IT, Healthcare, finance sector complaining about IPPIS?

I wonder if the author did?
Oh I am the author!
What do you expect from someone who's been away from school since the past 4 months and counting?
Forget about my English, I just want to go back to class. You people should stop being selfish, and try to consider us. Our mates are soaring higher than us in the academic field.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 6:34pm On Jun 20|
Less than 6 months ago, FG released over 50 Billion to avert ASUU strike, and they were pushing to do more before the strike came on board.
When ASUU get paid like that, they won't make comments for weeks...
For example when FG paid the last 36 billion salary arrears. It took them about 2 weeks to even acknowledge the payment
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Voldoz: 6:56pm On Jun 20|
See ASUU are still going to strike if you give them everything in the national Budget. Just like FG ASUU are their own cabal
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Shoodboi: 6:58pm On Jun 20|
You didn't make a single point. Government is continuous and every new government is required to honor the agreements made by the previous ones. ASUU also went on strike during GEJs tenure. They even fought him over subsidy back in 2012.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 7:04pm On Jun 20|
I miss school environment, my course mates, and miss been on the path of acheiving my goals (Obtain my certificate with first or 2nd class honours, and get the f*CK out of the stewpid system of rigorous strike)
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 7:05pm On Jun 20|
The most annoying part is that we are been kept at home because of a payment platform
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 7:07pm On Jun 20|
Why will an employee be dictating mode of payment to his employer? Where is it done sir?
The whole thing is so annoying...
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by The5DME(m): 7:15pm On Jun 20|
The strike is going to be called-off next year.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by LadymissiIe(f): 7:18pm On Jun 20|
which school? course and level?
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HaryaorGirl(f): 7:19pm On Jun 20|
You are not far from the truth.
ASUU is not ready to shift grounds.
They want UTAS by fire by force.
Students nationwide protest has even given them more ginger.
We need to protest against them now.
The government has done few things. They should let us resume

|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Shoodboi: 7:32pm On Jun 20|
You still aren't making a point. Why is ASUU fighting? What agreements did they have with the previous and current governments? And how have both sides fulfilled their ends of the agreement?
That's the issue. The relationship between ASUU and the FG has gone beyond normal Employer-employee relationship, if it ever was, that is. Unions go up against their private employers if need be, not to talk of the government.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by eddie7: 7:44pm On Jun 20|
Prof. Kayode Adebowale, a member of ASUU and current Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan was on duty as returning officer of the just concluded Ekiti governorship election
Prof. Adebowale didn't turn down this 'juicy' offer in solidarity of the ongoing strike
I am pretty sure a good number of INEC's ad hoc staff are members of ASUU drawn from Universities
A good number of those who came out to vote for the Party in power to win are students, no sign of protest during voting to vent their frustration or better still refusing to turn up as a result of the ongoing strike
Who do you blame between ASUU and Government?
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by pdf90(m): 8:45pm On Jun 20|
Na only you waka come.... We've had our share of the ASUU strike...all these lamentations won't help... Just go and find something doing... Youh might be home till 2023...
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Raymondfayowole(m): 9:24pm On Jun 20|
"To Advert" Why is the FG always reacting and not proactive. Why wait for strike to start before acting? We are here talking about 2009 agreement with so many reviews and revisions from past administration still yet, nothing to show for it. Budget for the year came with the minimum wage, why was it hard to implement? How come nothing about the accountant general came up in your writeup?
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by HitRun(m): 10:04pm On Jun 20|
Aunty, this your write up no get direction.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Jung(m): 10:28pm On Jun 20|
Apparently you don't know what ASUU is fighting for. Probably you are a student and you are only interested in going to school and finishing on time.
If you don't know, the little benefits you're getting from the university system was gotten via struggle by ASUU
No lecturer is earning up to 500k as salary. Most are paid less than 200k and have been earning the same salary for more than 15 years since 2008.
No good labs, no good structures, no good hostels. No funding to do anything worthwhile in the schools, yet they keep creating more.
If you don't have anything meaningful to contribute other than ranting like a selfish ignoramus, stfu and let them fight for what they deserve.
There are mothers, fathers, breadwinners, etc who are lecturers. How do you think they take care of their families? You just open your phone and type nonsense that you know absolutely nothing about, with your badly constructed sentences.
Don't be a Buffoon creating threads to antagonize you know nothing about.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Jung(m): 10:31pm On Jun 20|
36 billion was not salary arrears, Buffoon. Go back and read what was paid. And it was never part of the negotiations with the government.
Is this who wants to finish with a first class? Ha, God... Uniben is finished.
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by Ikennablue(m): 11:57pm On Jun 20|
Jung:instead of attacking the subject of discussion, or correcting the OP, you insulted him and still provide nothing tangible on the subject and still claim to be learned and informed.
Are they striking because they need salary increment or because of the UTAS system of payment??

I thought you're here to answer your questions and enlighten us, but I and a lot of us are disappointed. You're not a wise man sir
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by honour7: 1:16am On Jun 21|
the problem with IPPIS from what I understand is that the universities can no longer employ people, without the permission of the. Federal government which may be bad for the schools, normally if a person graduates with a first class or a strong 2:1, a professor can sponsor the person for employment after graduation, making the best brains available to the university, but now nothing, the FG have to approve first and you all know how it goes when FG is involved, in one word “nepotism”. I think that is the major reason they are fighting for UTAs
|Re: Why FG Should Not Consider Approving UTAS- A Nairalander by edogu(m): 1:49am On Jun 21|
HaryaorGirl:Under President Goodluck administration, there was two platforms for payment- IPPIS and GIFMIS. The later allowed the university to operate without any unnecessary intervention from the government. However, under the President Buhari's administration, the university staff were forced to ditch the GIFMIS and adopt IPPIS. Unfortnately, the IPPIS does not give the university the freedom to operate. Things like sabbatical leave which was recognised by NUC was not recognised by the system.
The university system operates a different calendar system while IPPIS calendar operates from January to December.
For instance, the university usually start their appraisal by May. Appraisal for academics are three or four stages. Departmental, faculty and by the University Vice Chancellor. However, if you are going for professorial cadre your papers need to be sent out for external assessment. By the time these appraisals must have been concluded, the university calendar must have been over. Unfortunately, IPPIS doesn't capture arrears outside this calendar especially if it has exceeded three months.
Also where there's urgent need to engage lecturers especially professors for accreditation, university may need to write IPPIS for approval which sometimes takes long before it happens.
As for the 36 billion, the money was meant to take care of the minimum wage arrears which was approved in 2019. Mind you the money was meant also for polytechnics, colleges of education and not just the university community yet not every university staff has seen theirs.
There are many more but let me stop here for now.

It’s obvious the person who wrote this was born during the second coming of Buhari. What nonsense.
