FG Removes Tertiary Institutions From IPPIS

On Wednesday, December 13, 2023, the Federal Executive Council (FEC), approved the country’s universities and other higher institutions’ exemption from the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information Systems (IPPIS), enabling the institutions to handle staff salary concerns internally.

Prof. Mamman Tahir, the Minister of Education, revealed this to State House reporters during President Bola Tinubu’s council meeting at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

According to him, the FEC decided to remove the institutions from the system because it was worried about the management and effectiveness of the institutions.

In addition to the objection of the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU), to the payment system, he claimed that the IPPS issue has taken a lot of time for Vice Chancellors at universities, “dragging the efficiency of the management of the institutions.”

The Minister clarified that the tertiary institutions ought to be let to exercise their autonomy because they were subject to legal regulation.
