FG Reportedly Stops Payment Of Salaries For Lecturers Not On IPPIS

The federal government has ordered stoppage of salaries of lecturers and all workers of tertiary institutions who are not enrolled on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), reports.

In a letter seen by The Cable, the accountant-general of the federation asked the finance minister not to release funds meant for January salaries to tertiary institutions, saying payments would be made through the IPPIS platform.

The directive on non-payment of salaries comes three weeks after President Muhammadu Buhari hosted members of The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the presidential villa in Abuja over the IPPIS controversy.

ASSU had rejected the federal government’s directive for workers to enroll in the centralised payroll system, saying it would affect the autonomy of universities.

The union had instead proposed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) “to address the peculiar cases of lecturers in the payment of salaries and other emoluments”.

But the federal government had insisted on IPPIS. During the meeting with Buhari Zainab Ahmed, minister of finance, budget and national planning, had told ASUU members that 96,090 workers had enrolled on the platform, urging those who were yet to comply with the directive to do so.


  1. What does ASSU mean by university autonomy?
    Are Nigerian Universities autonomous; and government are paying your salaries?
    This is what they won't copy from Americans; where lecturers are actively involved in productive researches and universities are receiving grants to fund it. Universities are making monies to fund its staff.
    Universities are where brain power is and they fund the industrial economies.
    What a shame on Nigerian Universities.

    1. Some lecturer in Nigeria win grants for their Universities. Is it correct to use grant funds to pay salary.

    2. Some lecturer in Nigeria win grants for their Universities. Is it correct to use grant funds to pay salary.

  2. Very good..Don't pay them..The government wants to know how they spend the money as most VCs dey like chop money...Them say no yet you always want Government to do your bidding?? Nehi..

  3. 5...4.....3...2...1, Nigerian students get ready for meaningless strikes,so sad

  4. the ippis was rejected because it did not accommodate the peculiarities of the want lecturer to teach in neighbouring universities for free....what about those on sabbatical????how do they get if the youths were ready to read..we would not have to be 'borrowing' lecturers who have become indispensable' since there are few to teach that particular subject. the 2009 agreement,the 2019 agreements, the EAA would be swept off if ASUU accepts the ippis.
    Hell No!!!!

  5. please you guys should just say what you know .rather than talk rubbish

    1. Because you are a beneficiary of the corrupt system in the tertiary institution doesn't give you the right to call others opinion rubbish.
      The same system that refuses to stop post UTME, their initial complain was lack of credibility of jamb but now that jamb has really improved they refused to stop and even conduct post post graduate exam. They created another avenue of corruption in the name of acceptance fee, they turn themselves to cabal that be control by threatening the nation with strike. What are they hiding that they found it difficult to register.
