The House of Representatives has mandated three of its committees to intervene in the conflict between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the implementation of Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) policy.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently issued a directive for the implementation of the IPPIS for the payment of salaries of all federal government workers.
The president said any worker not on the platform will not receive a salary after October 31.
The federal government and ASUU have disagreed over the new directive.
Nigerian federal university workers said they would automatically go on strike if the government carries out its threat to withhold their salary for refusing to enrol in the new payment system.
