He said, “I am sure that we need to review some of the items on the agreements.
“We cannot have an agreement signed in 2009 and still think this is the only way we can deal with it.
The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who addressed journalists after a three-hour closed-door session with the leadership of the Senate, said the visit was a follow up to the earlier one held between ASUU and the Senate in October 2019 to find a way out of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System crisis.
Ogunyemi said the UTAS was a home-grown system that would end the eight-month industrial action by ASUU if embraced by the Federal Government.
He said, “We had a positive meeting which was cordial and we are going to continue from there. We will still meet again to continue from where we stopped.

“We have developed what we call University Transparency and Accountability Solution. We have presented it to the Senate today and the Senate President commended it.
“We are going to present the platform to other stakeholders. UTAS is home grown while IPPIS is foreign.
“We have shown that we are inventors, we are creators of software and we are also capable of doing what our colleagues are doing in other parts of the world.”
Ogunyemi said ASUU had never shifted from its position to oppose the IPPIS, which would not benefit his members.
