The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is trending at number one on Twitter this morning; and it has got everyone talking.
Most especially Federal University students.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU); is to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari on the recent directive he gave to the Accountant General of the Federation; to include university lecturers in the Integrated Payroll Personnel System (IPPS).
The National Auditor of the union, Comrade Christ Piwuna; made this known during a public lecture organized by the Bauchi State University; Gadau Branch of the union entitled ” University Autonomy and Ethical Reorientation.”
He lamented that inclusion of universities in the system violates the agreement reached between the federal government and the union; as the policy was against the law establishing universities and its amendment act.
According to him, ASUU was not totally against the policy; just that Governing Councils of Universities should be allowed to implement that for staff in their various institutions not the federal government.
Of course you know Twitter is reacting:
While some students are overjoyed at the thought of the union going on strike;
Some are literally dreading the thought of strike;
And all some others see is the imminent corruption present in the union;
