Lecturers secretly enrolling into IPPIS despite ASUU’s order

ASUU meets Senate

The Federal Government has revealed that despite the order by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), lectures are still enrolling into the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

According to Olusegun Olufehinti, the Coordinator of IPPIS in the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, about 41 universities lecturers have been so far captured.

The Federal Government had insisted that no salary for any worker who is not captured on the IPPIS platform.

The IPPIS was introduced by the government of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to stop ghost workers and double payments. It is an integral part of the Federal Government’s public finance reform initiatives aimed at ensuring transparency and accountability in the government’s payroll.

Despite ASUU disagreement, the FG insisted that it does not employ the union, but individuals, adding that anyone not captured would not receive salaries.

“From the report we are having currently, they (referring to lecturers who apparently needs the money to survive) are enrolling. The enrolment is just to take their biometrics because we have not got to payrolling. This is the first process. For now, we don’t have problems despite their tactics.

“The response is encouraging. There is no cause for alarm, as of today, out of the 43 (universities) we have received nominal roll from 41 of them.”
