Only university lecturers on IPPIS would get salaries – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari addressing the nation to mark the 2020 Democracy Day on 12th June, 2020

President Muhammadu Buhari has insisted that members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will get salaries.

He stated this on Thursday in his budget presentation speech to the joint session of the two Chambers of the National Assembly in Abuja.

In the highlight of the 2021 Appropriation bill presented to the National Assembly, he explained that all sectors of the economy would get attention in 2021 budget allocation, but reiterated the Federal Government’s position on payment of salaries of University lecturers.

He assured the public that those lecturers who were captured in the IPPIS will continue to draw their salaries without any hitch.

This despite claims by lecturers that many of them have not been paid for between three and seven months this year.

Buhari advised the leadership of ASUU to understand the position of government, which he believes would remove fraud from the educational institutions.

The president earlier arrived the National Assembly at about 11.00am and was received by the joint session of the two legislative Chambers.
