• UTAS lacks tax deduction, we can’t pay without deducting tax, declares Federal Govt

The Federal Government on Tuesday denied allegations that it had breached agreements it reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The Spokesman for the Ministry of Education, Ben Gong, who stated this in an interview with The PUNCH in Abuja, also explained why the Federal Government could not adopt the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, a payment platform developed by ASUU.

According to him, UTAS does not make provision for tax deduction from salaries. He added that ASUU members cannot collect salaries without paying taxes.
