ASUU Strike Looms As FG Stops Payment Of Salaries To Lecturers Not Enrolled on IPPIS
Report has emerged that the FG has issued a round mandating the Director of Cash Management to stop salaries of tertiary institutions people who’re yet to be enrolled in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) platform.
The round which changed into signed by means of the Director of IPPIS became titled: Request for stoppage of Release of Funds For January Salaries To Federal Universities, Polytechnics and College of Education
It reads; “I am directed to tell you that the training of January 2020 revenue payroll and warrants of the Federal Tertiary institutions are ongoing and could be prepared for submission on or earlier than 29th January 2020. This is to give effect to the directive of the Federal Government that all ministries, Departments, and Agencies drawing Personnel Cost from the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CFR) have to be enrolled at the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
In order to actualize this directive, you are please requested no longer to release the funds for charge of salaries to the Tertiary Institutions as their salaries will henceforth be paid on the IPPIS platform with impact from January 2020.
Please receive the assurances and heat regards of the Accountant General of the Federation.”
Recall that ASUU earlier said that its individuals will no longer join IPPIS because it does now not meet the peculiar desires of the union and any move to stop the salaries of its contributors will lead to every other indefinite strike.
With this development, ASUU may make actual its risk to embark on indefinite strike
