There is tension on the campus of federal universities, over the failure of the presidency and academic staff union of universities (ASUU), to resolve their differences over the integrated payroll and personnel information system (IPPIS)
There is fear that lecturers may embark on a fresh indefinite strike, anytime from now, over the stalemate
The national executive council of ASUU met over the weekend in Enugu, to discuss the issue and the delayed full implementation of the 2009 agreement with the presidency
The presidency has threatened to stop the salaries of any lecturers in its universities who failed to enrol into the IPPIS from the month of February
The ASUU leaders have warned that the decision might disrupt academic activities in the universities
ASUU during a recent meeting with President Buhari on the IPPIS issue had tabled its own version of the payroll system which it claim accommodate the peculiarities of the University system.
