The representatives of federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) are to meet Thursday meet over the lingering crisis in the tertiary institutions.
Spokesperson of the ministry of Labour and Employment, Charles Akpan, in a short message sent to our correspondent noted that the meeting will hold by 2:00pm.
Although, the agenda of the meeting was not disclosed, it was gathered that the meeting will be centred on issues surrounding Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
“The Honorable Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige will be meeting with Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities. The meeting is scheduled as follows: Thursday 15th October 2020”, Akpan said.
Daily Trust reports that the federal government and the ASUU had been at loggerheads over issue on the platform.
The government, however, said on Tuesday that it is considering the adoption of the University Transparency Account System (UTAS) presented by the ASUU a day after leadership of the union met with National Assembly heads.
