President Buhari stops salaries of some lecturers

Keeping you Informed

INEWSBC | President Muhammadu Buhari has stopped lecturers of federal higher institutions who are not enrolled in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) from collecting salaries.

The Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) has informed accounting offices of federal tertiary institutions about the new development, Daily Trust reported.

The OAGF through the director IPPIS, Nsikak Ben, in a letter dated October 8, 2020, to the tertiary institutions said the directive was given by the president.

The letter read:

I am directed to inform you that any staff of your institution who has not enrolled on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), either as a result of Study Leave (with pay), Maternity Leave or on Medical ground, will no longer appear on the IPPIS payroll with effect from November, 2020 payroll except such staff presents himself/herself for the biometric data capture at the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation (OAGF), Abuja with an introduction letter/IPPIS Enrollment forms duly endorsed by the principal authorities of the institution.”

Many lecturers in federal higher institutions have refused to enroll in the IPPIS. They alleged that the payroll system is not transparent.

Meanwhile, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reacted to the federal government’s directives for the full reopening of all schools in Nigeria including tertiary institutions and unity colleges.

The body’s president, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, on Friday, October 2, said institutions cannot reopen because ASUU is still on strike.

Ogunyemi, who noted that the federal government has the right to reopen, however, stated that lecturers will continue to withhold their service.
