Bayero University Kano has disengaged no fewer than 30 academic staff on contract appointment in the institution.
The termination of appointment of the lecturers is not unconnected with the refusal of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to comply with Federal government directive on enrollment on the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS).
Those affected include former vice chancellor of the University and Chief Iman of Kano, Professor Sani Zaharadden, and several professors who were already retired but engaged on contract services to render prowess in their field.
According to a Guardian report, one of the affected lectures, Dr. Saidu Dukawa of department of political science, revealed the sad decision of the university to terminate his contract appointment because of the IPPIS.
Out of 1,776 academic staff of BUK, about 40 members have registered on IPPIS, defiling the directive of ASUU, says a source.
When contacted, Vice chancellor of the university, Professor Mohammad Yahuza Bello who confirmed the development however insisted that those affected are not more than 10.
