The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have come under criticism for always resorting to strikes when they want results.

Ifeanyi Okonkwo, from the Department of Geology at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, feels strike is not the only option.

He says the current stand-off between ASUU and the federal government over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), should not have been an issue at all.

“ASUU should have started with a system like IPPIS but tailored for Universities (as they belatedly did).”

At the meeting held on Friday, the federal government agreed to increase its offer to the union to N70 billion.

However, Okonkwo believes the offer is only a temporary solution just to foster resumption for this year but not a lasting solution.

“As for allowances, I’m not sure how long ASUU is going to keep fighting for arrears when there is no standard system for current allowance payments.

“In the next 5 years they will strike over 2020 allowances,” he added, if the government didn’t do the needful.
