CONUA, a breakaway faction of the Academic Staff of Universities (ASUU) maintained that they are an independent union on university campuses in Nigeria, adding that they were not members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Oripeloye said the congress believed strongly in objective and constructive engagement with the government rather than strike. He noted that they had enrolled in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) after consultations with the government and their concerns were being addressed.

While commending the National University Commission (NUC) for directing the opening of universities nationwide, he stressed that there was no conflict between CONUA and ASUU, noting that the two unions only differed in an ideology which reflected in their approach to getting the government to approve their requests.

He also said CONUA had been interacting with the government on how to solve many of the problems identified on the IPPIS platform.
