FG directs stoppage of salaries of varsity workers’ not enrolled on IPPIS


The Federal Government has said university employee who is not enrolled on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System would no longer receive salaries with effect from November 2020.

The memo was issued to all university vice-chancellors through the Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigeria, Federal Universities.

It gave the directive in its latest memo from the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation with reference number OAGF/IPPIS/446/1/159, dated October 8, 2020, and signed by the Director, IPPIS, Nsikak Ben, for the AGF.

The order read in part:

“I am directed to inform you that any staff of your institution who has not enrolled on the IPPIS, either as a result of study leave (with pay), maternity leave or on medical ground, will no longer appear on the IPPIS payroll.

“This is with effect from November 2020, except such staff presents himself/herself for the biometric data capture at the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, Abuja.”

The government said such worker would have to appear with an introductory letter/IPPIS enrolment forms duly endorsed by the principal authorities of the institution.

It added that all supporting documents should include evidence of six months’ salary, according to bank statements.

“In view of the above, kindly inform your staff in this category to urgently avail themselves for the biometric data capture at the OAGF,” the government stated in its memo to the vice-chancellors.

It, however, noted that exemption might only be given where institutions provided evidence of study leave.
