He said in most of the schools where the exercise was being implemented, the level of turnout from university lecturers had been “impressive”, and the figure would keep increasing as the deadline approaches.

The IPPIS enrolment which commenced on November 25 would come to an end on December 7, 2019.

Olusegun said, “The enrolment is ongoing and we are having impressive results. Even the ASUU members are now coming to enrol.”

When asked if the December 7 deadline would be extended, he said this would depend on the areas so far covered and the gaps that exist in the enrolment exercise.
