Back home in Nigeria, the faceoff between the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has entered its 140th day on Monday.

 

ASUU had insisted on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) it created, stated that the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) was short changing the teachers.

 

The government in March said UTAS has failed three integrity tests.

 

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, responding to questions from newsmen after the Federal Executive Council meeting (FEC, assured that efforts were ongoing to resolve the faceoff between it and ASUU and other university-based unions over payment platforms soon.

 

He said contrary to insinuations that the government had neglect ASUU, there have actually been series of meetings between all parties with the next one coming up on Thursday.

 

However, the striking union has since denied this claim. To make sense of this, Dele Ashiru, Lagos ASUU chairman speaks to us now. Thank you very much for joining us.
