The reactions have followed behind the eight months of strike by the University Academic Staff Union, ASUU, in the country.

The union went on strike in March 2020, following a disagreement with the federal government.

However, the main problem that led to the strike earlier this year was largely caused by the introduction of the Integrated Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

The Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPS) is a centralized payroll platform of the Federal Government. It helps the government to plan and manage its payroll budget, ensuring that there is no gap in the disbursement of salaries.

Its objective is to pay accurately and on time within the legal and contractual regulations. Our goal is to provide a payroll service that is customer-centric and uses technology wherever possible.

There are 459 MDAS on the IPPIS platform as of June 31, 2017. The department is responsible for processing and paying the salary of more than three hundred thousand (300,000) federal government employees in the 459 MDAs. The purpose of IPPIS is to enroll in the platform, all federal government MDAs that draw personnel cost funds from the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

Other topics include paying salaries and financing colleges. Finding a balance for the above questions is what keeps students and teachers at home.

The disagreement has caused the teachers to live discreetly; miserable life unless you have a business as an alternative.

As for the students, many have joined bad gangs and have forgotten their registration numbers at school. Due to their inactivity, some have engaged in illegal and worldly activities that affect the development and growth of Nigeria.

Tired of staying home, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) decided on Monday to organize a massive nationwide protest to insist on its demand for the immediate reopening of all universities in the country.

Also reacting, Deji Adeyanju, the leader of the Concerned Nigeria group, said: “ASUU is still on strike. Pity for our students and teachers. #EndSARS “.
