Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has given approval for the immediate payment of withheld February and March salaries of members of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, who have not registered on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information, IPPIS platform.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige on Tuesday disclosed that the president gave the approval for ‘the immediate payment of the withheld salaries of February and March 2020 of the university lecturers who have not registered on the IPPIS platform’.

“He has also directed the Ministry of Finance, Budget and Planning, and the Accountant-General of the Federation to effect the payments urgently by all means to cushion the deleterious effects of COVID-19 period on the lecturers and members of their family.

“All vice-chancellors are to revalidate affected lecturers’ Bank Verification Number, BVN, and forward same to the Accountant-General of the Federation for the payments.”

It should be recalled that the members of the academic staff had, last month, declared an indefinite strike over government’s decision to withhold the salaries of their members who defied its order to enroll in the Integrated Personnel and Payroll System, IPPIS.
