The Nnamdi Azikiwe University Branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU says not even a member of the Union from the University enrolled in the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System, IPPIS.
A former chairman of ASUU in the university, Prof Dennis Aribodor told Fides in a private chat that the insinuations that some members had sneaked out to enroll might be true in other universities, but not in Nnamdi Azikiwe University.
Aribodor said, ‘It is not true. Not even one member of our Union in Unizik went to enroll in IPPIS. There is no way anyone would have enrolled without us knowing about it. We have internal ways of sanctioning our members who are errant, but in this case, no one, not even one person flouting our directive.’
Another member of the Union in Unizik who opted to remain anonymous said the Union in the university selected some members to monitor the enrollment centre to detect members who would flout the directive of the Union, and that lecturers were forewarned of the fact that they would be monitored.
The lecturer said that if the leadership of the Union in the school had insisted that no one enrolled, then they might be right.
