Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it will continue to resist enrollment into the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) until the decision is rescinded.
The union threatened that any attempt by the Federal Government to stop members salary, the union would not hesitate to embark on an indefinite strike.
The National President of ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, gave the warning in Nsukka on Thursday while briefing newsmen shortly after addressing ASUU members in the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN).
He said enrolling in IPPIS amounted to destroying the autonomy and putting obstacles in the progress of public universities.
“ASUU is protecting the autonomy of universities for the interest of Nigerians and generation yet unborn.
“ASUU will continue to say no to enrollment into IPPIS and if the federal government stops our salary, we will stop work.
“IPPIS is an instrument by the government to erode the autonomy of public universities in the country,” he said.
