The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in a recent statement sheds light on the setback on the resumption of tertiary academics activities.

The union is calling on the government to carry out an integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, before the strike is disbanded, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, the President of ASUU revealed in an interview.

In his own words:
Quote
“We are still talking, we have given them the position of our members, we are thinking we should be able to hold a meeting this week if they have not changed plans.

“The meeting for Monday was postponed. In principal, they have accepted UTAS and told us to go for the test, and on our part, we have started the process.

Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, the President of ASUU
“We had presented UTAS at three levels, starting with the Ministry of Education, Senate President and members of his team, officials of Ministry of Finance and Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, where all other stakeholders were present, including NITDA, all stakeholders have witnessed the presentation and the next stage of integrity test is what we are moving in to.

“If government facilitates it, it is not something that should drag for too long at all. We don’t foresee any problem with UTAS; it also depends on how early the government makes it possible for the integrity test to be conducted.”
he added.
