The Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU has come out to debunk the information made available to the public by the Minister of Education Ahl. Adamu Adamu and the Chairman of National Information Technology Development Agency, NITDA concerning the UTAS integrity test.
In an official press release signed by the President of ASUU Emmanuel Osodeke, it stated the information provided to the general public concerned the integrity test of UTAS is not true. The minister and the Chairman had earlier granted a press briefing where they declared that UTAS had failed the needed integrity test to be able to serve its purpose. However, ASUU President stated that the UTAS system had passed the User Acceptance Test and Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Test and it accumulated a 77% pass which pass as satisfactory remarks.
ASUU further warns the DG of NITDA to desist from comments that are capable of jeopardizing the effort of the union in reaching a positive conclusion on the matter of discussion.
UTAS is the alternative payment system proposed by ASUU to serve in place of IPPIS proposed by the federal government for payment of salaries of the academic staff of universities.
