ABUJA—THE meeting between the Federal Government and the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, over the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, platform last night ended in deadlock.
There were heated arguments between representatives of Federal Government and ASUU as the two parties maintained their positions on PPIS.
The meeting took place at the Conference Hall of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Abuja.
As the meeting progressed, the quiet atmosphere suddenly changed when a top member of ASUU delegation accused the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, of conspiring with other government officials instead of playing his role as chief conciliator he claimed.

A source privy to development at the meeting stated  that ASUU members had chided the minister and other government officials for coming behind schedule to the meeting contrary to the earlier time slated at 2p.m.
According to the source, “You scheduled a meeting for 2p.m., you came two hours after; you wasted our time, and you’re still here telling us to take an offer we had rejected. What kind of mess is that?
“See, you are talking to intellectuals, we will respect the constituted authorities as much as we can because that is what we teach in our various institutions.
