This is believed to be as a result of the failure of some members of ASUU to enroll in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, IPPIS.

According to the reports, the accountant-general of the federation through a letter signed by the Director of IPPIS, Olufehinti, O. J, asked the finance minister not to release funds meant for January salaries to members of the academic community, saying payments would be made through the IPPIS platform.
