After weeks of negotiations and foot -dragging, the Federal Government on Friday accepted the demand by the Academic Staff Union of Universities that they be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System .

The government also shifted grounds on a number of issues , including the insistence that all the academic staff of the federal universities must be paid through the IPPIS platform.

Reading out the communique at the end of a seven -hour negotiation with ASUU members in Abuja , the Minister of Labour and Employment , Senator Chris Ngige, said the government also agreed to ASUU’ s demand to pay their members ’ salary arrears from February to June through the old salary payment platform , Government Integrated Financial and Management Information System .

The government also offered to raise the Earned Allowances to university staff from N 30 bn to N 35 bn and the revitalization fund from N 20 bn to N 25 bn .

The breakthrough in negotiations is expected to end the eight- month strike embarked on by the university lecturers.
