The National Information Technology Development Agency was challenged by the ASUU side to demonstrate that the University Transparency Accountability Solution, UTAS it had recommended failed the integrity test. The ASUU side insisted on an independent and domesticated platform for university lecturers.

On Thursday, when the invited parties appeared before the House, government representatives made ASUU a new offer to modify the IPPIS to take into account the unique characteristics UTAS desires to acknowledge.

The recommendations of the parliament and the stakeholders’ roundtable report were just about to be ready, according to Speaker of the House Femi Gbajabiamila.

At the conclusion of the two-hour meeting, Gbajabiamila urged with ASUU to accept whatever the House ultimately advises in good faith.

“I think this would be, hopefully, the last meeting we are going to have on this matter,” he said. “The leadership of the House will put our reports, our recommendations, and our thoughts together from here, and take them to Mr. President.

“I am hoping that whatever we have done, ASUU as an independent arm of the government will accept it in good faith, and that the government will accept it in good faith as well, because that is the whole point of this, so that our children can go back to school.”

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, previously said that given the current circumstances, the Ministers cannot sign any agreement with ASUU without receiving the President’s approval.

Additionally, the Head of the Federation’s Civil Service, Folashade Yemi-Esan, urged ASUU to permit the university system to be integrated with IPPIS because of the significant financial implications of running two separate platforms for employee payments.

However, the ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, argued that doing so would usurp the authority granted to the governing councils of the institutions and would allow the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation and the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation to decide who should be paid in the universities.
