The ongoing strike is almost 8month as it started March this year but due to covid19 pandemic break in between.
The coordinator of Calabar Zone of ASUU, Dr Aniekan Brown while addressing journalists yesterday in Calabar said actions would continue as long as government insists on Integrated payroll and Personal Information system, IPPIS.
In his statement, he said;
”We will not resume work until government addresses our demand, ASUU members have not paid for between four and nine months. We are still in trenches”.
“We argued that is is a case of economic waste, because ASUU has been rejecting IPPIS since 2013 and government challenged us produce an alternative. We then took up to the challenge and came up with UTAS”.
