Only 55% of ASUU lectures will receive their February salaries – Finance Minister

Mrs Zainab Ahmed, Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, has said any lecturer who has not been captured in the Integrated Personal Payroll Information System should not expect their February salaries.

Thekokospot understands that the Minister made this disclosure at a management retreat held in Kano.

Mrs Zainab Ahmed also said that the objective of the IPPIS is to check corruption.

She revealed that only 55% of the lectures from the Academic Staff Union of Universities have been captured.

“Unfortunately most reforms that you undertake you come across resistance. We have had resistance from ASUU on the implementation of the IPPIS and I am happy to report that at least up to 55 percent of ASUU members are registered and the ones that have not are not getting their February salary.

“It is in eliminating ghost workers because you register on the IPPIS using biometrics and we are currently working with the office of the head of the service to link up the IPPIS HR management module with the payroll itself. It will help us better maximize the efficiency of the system”, she said.
