Reacting, Sunmonu denied being an APC member.
Sunmonu revealed this on Wednesday during an interview appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
Asked by the anchor if he belongs to the APC, Sunmonu denied being a member of the ruling party or any other political party.
He said: “I am not a member of APC or any political party.”
Asked if CONUA agrees with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) by rejecting the federal government’s Integrated Payroll and Personnel information system (IPPIS) and proposing the adoption of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), Sunmonu said no system is perfect.
He argued that the bone of contention is not about the payment software but the wage structure of University lecturers.
The CONUA boss added that just like their ASUU counterparts, they have not been paid due to the lingering strike and the decision of the government to adopt the no-work-no-pay policy.
“Our salaries have not been paid though we have been working,” he highlighted.
Despite agreeing that some of the demands by ASUU are justified, he said using strike to press home the demands is not the best option.
He instead recommended continuous dialogue.
“Negatives of strike outweigh positives,” he said.
