The Academic Staff Union of Universities and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities have described the report where the National Information Technology Development Agency said the University Transparency Accountability Solution proposed by ASUU and the University Peculiar Personnel and Payroll System by SSANU failed integrity tests as a political and unofficial statement.
The national president, ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke therefore called on the Federal Government to deplore the service of a neutral organisation to conduct the tests on the payment solution systems, Punch reports.
Furthermore, Osodeke and national Vice-President, SSANU Mr Abdussobor Salaam, stressed that their unions don’t have the official position of the government on both platforms.
‘‘It’s not an official report. We are not privy to its content. We expect NITDA to submit the official report, as such, no comments”, the paper quotes Salaam as saying.
‘‘It is a political statement. This is a test we finished two months ago, they didn’t give us results. Thank God they agreed that IPPIS which they have been using for the past 16 years failed a test conducted by the same government using it. Let government produce the results.
‘‘We ask for a neutral company to do the test, if we are able to do that the real result will come out. We scored 99 per cent in the first test because we were given the result day by day. But this one which was conducted two months ago, they refused to give us results”, Osadeke was quoted as saying.
