IPPIS: Lecturers are enrolling despite ASUU’s opposition

The Federal Government has received the nominal roll of about 41 universities as part of moves to capture university workers into the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System.

The Coordinator of IPPIS in the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, Mr Olusegun Olufehinti, confirmed the figure to one of our correspondents during a telephone interview on Wednesday.

He said the Federal Government was determined to ensure that all its employees were captured on the IPPIS platform.

While stating that the exercise was a bit delayed in some institutions due to the difficulty in getting to those locations, he said the IPPIS officials from the OAGF had arrived at all the designated locations to conduct the exercise.

He said at the end of the enrolment, only those that have been captured would be paid their salaries. Olufehinti said since the government did not employ any union, it was imperative for every employee of government to ensure they were captured on the personnel payroll platform.

The IPPIS coordinator said since the commencement of the enrolment for university workers, the rate of response had been encouraging.

He said, “From the report we are having currently, they (lecturers) 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.
