LECTURER

The Federal Government has dismissed claims by University Lecturers that they have not been paid for eight months.
The Minister of State for Education, Mr Emeka Nwajiuba, insisted that such a claim was unfair.
Speaking to Journalists today, Mr Nwajiuba said that some lecturers got excess salaries and had to refund it to the Government.
There has been some controversy over the introduction of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) into the Educational System.
Lecturers under the aegis of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had faulted the introduction of IPPIS.
Amid the controversy over IPPIS, ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi had accused the Federal Government of withholding the salaries of lecturers for eight months.
