The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The union members led by their National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, visited Buhari over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The meeting was at the instance of the university lecturers who have been resisting enrolling on the IPPIS.

The body, it was gathered used the opportunity to asked President Buhari to allow its members adopt a University Transparency and Accountability Solution instead of the government’s preferred IPPIS.

ASUU has repeatedly rejected the IPPIS, saying it is a fraud and threat to national security.
