The federal government has fixed December 7, 2019, as deadline for staff of federal universities and Colleges of Education, to enrol into the Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPIS).
A statement from the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF), said the enrollment of staff of the federal tertiary institutions, will commence on November 25th, 2019, and end on 7th December 2019.
According to the statement, “all staff of Federal Universities and Colleges of Education in Nigeria are to present themselves for enrollment into the Integrated Personnel and Payroll System (IPPIS) with the following documents: Letter of First Appointment; Letter of Last Promotion; Evidence of Transfer of Service (if any); Staff Identification Card; Birth Certificate/Declaration of Age; Educational Qualifications; Copy of Bank Statement (6 months); BVN Printout; PFA Printout and Evidence of Change of Name (if any).”
The accountant general’s office further appealed to the concerned staff of federal universities and Colleges of Education to cooperate and ensure a seamless enrollment.
But the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has vowed not to enrol on the IPPIS, created by the government.
Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, ASUU’s national vice-president, said this on Monday in Abuja, during an interview at the ASUU Heroes’ Day celebration.
He said the body will decide its next line of action, should the federal government decide to stop the salaries of its members.
The union had also met with the National Assembly on October 28, to make its position known on the IPPS.
