ACADEMIC Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) yesterday accused Office of Accountant General of the Federation of being enmeshed in a gale of bribery and Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) fraud.

  President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, made the allegation in an interview with newsmen on the latest face off looming between university lecturers and federal government.

  According to Ogunyemi, the scams in which the Office of Accountant General of the Federation is embroiled goes on in what he called ‘bribe-for-salaries’ scams.

  “It is laughable that when federal government is insisting that there is no alternative to the payment platform, massive fraud is going side-by-side. This proves our point that IPPIS was fraught with corruption. Is this why some university teachers, especially those who went on sabbatical, were being owed between 15 and 16 months salaries?” Ogunyemi queried.

  It will be recalled that a release issued by Federal Ministry of Education said that there was no going back on IPPIS. But observers say the move may pitch government and ASUU on another war path that may truncate the fledgling stability in the nation’s tertiary education sector.
