Members of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have again asked for the salary payment platform, Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information (IPPIS) to be stopped.
At a press briefing in Abuja, the varsity workers disclosed that majority of them had enrolled on the platform in the interest of the nation considering pervasive personnel and payroll indiscretions and infractions observed in the Nigerian University system.
SSANU President, Mohammed Haruna Ibrahim who spoke to newsmenn on behalf of the Joint Action Committee of the two unions, , said they were demanding a total stoppage of the IPPIS after “unpalatable experience” and revert to the old payment platform.
Recall that recalled that the two unions had notified the federal government through Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, of its own payment platform called University General Peculiar Payroll Payment System (UGPPPS)
Ibrahim explained, “From January this year, so many anomalies have been witnessed in salaries of our members, from underpayment to overpayment and multiple payment among others.
“Series of letters had been written to the relevant government offices, expressing our displeasure and seeking correction of these anomalies which had never been witnessed in the university system prior to the introduction of IPPIS”.
