The Academic Staff Union of Universities, on Tuesday, dismissed suggestions that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has directed the stoppage of salaries of university lecturers yet to enrol into the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, in a statement in Abuja, giving brief details of the lecturers’ meeting with the President on Thursday.

ASUU’s President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, led national officers of the union to the meeting, which started at 3pm.

But, the unionists did not address State House Correspondents after the meeting end.

Ogunyemi, in the statement on Tuesday, also said rumours that Buhari directed stoppage of lecturers’ salaries were fake.

He emphasised that ASUU met with Buhari on Thursday and discussed the IPPIS issue, which the union had rejected “with sound reasons.”

“To put the records straight, at no point during the meeting did President Buhari put a closure to the ongoing discussion on ASUU’s preference for the University Transparency and Accountability Solution.

“He also did not direct that salaries of ASUU members be stopped for failure to enroll in the IPPIS.

“Any report to the contrary is circulated to mislead the public,” he said.

He added that ASUU was committed to its tradition of consultation and dialogue which informed the engagement with Buhari last week.

“We had useful discussions with the President and we are hopeful that our prayers will receive the expected prompt attention,” he added. (NAN)
