“Please note that an enforcement team has been put in place to ensure total compliance by all SSANIP members to this directive as defaulters would be made to face disciplinary action in line with our union’s constitution,” the notice read.

In other news, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reiterated that it won’t give in to the nationwide strike by union members, which has now lasted five months.

This was said by Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the national president of ASUU, during a press conference on Tuesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

As a result of the government’s adoption of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) as the payment system in the university sector, lecturers at government-owned universities began a statewide strike on February 14.

They had also criticized the underfunding of institutions, the nonpayment of some of their coworkers’ salaries and benefits, and the government’s inability to pay lecturers’ deserved academic allowances, among other problems.

Numerous conversations between the union and the administration have resulted in impasse since the start of the industrial action.
