The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has accused the Federal Government of using IPPS to violate the autonomy of universities.

Speaking to newsmen, the Chairman of ASUU University of Port Harcourt chapter, Dr, Austen Sado, explained that, the intr­oduction of IPPIS to tertiary institution­s was a means of controlling the unive­rsities politically. He reiterated that, universities must be separated from civil service control and ma­nipulation for it to develop.

He also said some universities were already los­ing their authority to employ lecturers because of the  manipulation through IPPIS, stating that the platform was not robust enough to handle the peculiarities of the universities.
