The government also agreed to pay the lecturers their outstanding salaries using an older payment platform, GIFMIS, different from the controversial IPPIS.

The N65 billion seeks to address the issue of earned allowances and ”revitalisation of universities”.

Before the government introduced IPPIS to the union last year, the lecturers were receiving their pay through the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS).


The meeting

The Friday meeting, which was scheduled for 11 a.m. started at 2:25 p.m. with the labour minister, Chris Ngige, presiding.

He said the government gave the union some offers last week and “they promised to consult with their members and get back to us”.

“We pray for a fruitful discussion that will bring our children to school,” he said.

In his remark, the national president of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, said the position of the union members had been documented and will be presented to the minister.

Mr Ngige declared the commencement of the technical session of the meeting at 2:35 p.m.
