The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has pointed out why it won’t call off the industrial action embarked upon by its members since March.
The Calabar zone of the union expressed that its members will not go back to the classes on empty stomachs, insisting that the federal government meets the union’s demands.
The union expressed that the industrial action would continue as long as the government insists on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The Coordinator of the Calabar Zone of ASUU, Dr. Aniekan Brown made this known while addressing newsmen in Calabar on Monday, describing IPPIS as a cesspool of corruption.
He also dismissed claims by the Government that 71,000 ASUU members had already accepted to register with the IPPIS.
He went on to describe the claim as incorrect, pointing out that such was a distraction to the academic body.
