The Federal government has dismissed claims by university lecturers that they have not been paid for eight months, insisting such claims are unfair.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Nwajiuba said some lecturers got excess salaries and had to refund it to the government.

There have been some controversies surrounding the introduction of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) into the educational system as ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi had accused the federal government of withholding the salaries of lecturers for eight months.

Reacting to this, the Minister of State for Education Emeka Nwajiuba said; “I think it is a lie to say the government has not paid them in eight months. It will be unfair to the government and wouldn’t be necessary to bring that kind of argument because some people may have different levels.

“Some people even got salaries that were not adequate. Some people got over and had to refund. There were so many issues with it.”


  1. This government is so funny and are not ready to lead the people
    From the way they are behaving and talking, I don’t see anything good coming out from their governance only propaganda

  2. Why is that our government doesn’t value our educational system, the children of poor are nothing to them because if not they would have find solution to it.

  3. Government should try to settle for the agreement made in 2009, why is it always that whenever the government make an agreement they don’t honour it.
