ASUU rejects FG’s condition to use BVN for payment of salaries withheld

PublishedBy: in NewsApril 22, 2020

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has rejected the submission of Bank Verification Number (BVN) as a condition for payment of February and March withheld salaries of lectures in federal universities.

Thekokospot recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the payment of the February and March withheld salaries of lecturers in federal universities who are yet to join the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS)

The ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, in an interview with journalists  on Wednesday in Abuja, said ASUU have rejected the application of force on its members to join the IPPIS in spite of its offer of a more credible alternative to IPPIS.

The ASUU President said: “We have been told that the Federal Government has approved the payment of withheld salaries of our members for the months of February and March.

“We appreciate Mr. President for doing that, however, withholding February and March salaries was unnecessary in the first place.

“In the second place, the issue is the condition attached to it, which does not go down well with our members, which is the supply of their BVN.

“Our members have been paid in the past without asking for their BVN.

“So, we have reasons to suspect that this is an indirect way to get us back to IPPIS, which our members rejected.

“So, these are things we are going to clarify with the government whenever we are called for a meeting.”
