IPPIS: ASUU Plunged FG Into N800bn Debt, Says Ngige
The Minister of Labor and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has said there will be no returning paying University speakers with the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.
While expressing that IPPIS had improved the viability and productivity of finance organization, Ngige said before its execution in the college framework, the Academic Staff Union of Universities supposedly dove the Federal Government into N800bn obligation coming about because of abnormalities in finance.
Ngige expressed this in a meeting with journalists in his Alor home, in the Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
He said the fundamental explanation ASUU took to the streets was a direct result of the presentation of IPPIS that had supposedly blocked escape clauses for appropriating and uncovered tremendous extortion in the framework.
He said in the old installment request, “charges deducted by treasurers and the Vice-Chancellors were not intelligent of the assessments of Pay As You Earn”.
He included, “They are not, and on the grounds that they are not, the deficit in the assessments they deducted, the different state governments where those colleges are domiciled have requested of the Joint Tax Board to request this shortage to be paid by the Federal Government which is the key manager of these college educators.
“Furthermore, over some time, that has gathered into about N800bn which the Joint Tax Board has charged the Federal Government as monies that have not been paid to those sub-national governments, the state governments.
“Furthermore, the Joint Tax Board is the implementer. In this way, the Federal Government through the Accountant-General needed to pay that cash, over N800bn.
“IPPIS deals with every one of these deficiencies. ASUU can’t and demanded that they have a framework that is superior to the IPPIS; that the IPPIS has a few weaknesses; that it doesn’t catch the individuals who are on vacation. It doesn’t catch visiting speakers and some different things they referenced.”
The Minister guaranteed when the administration asked ASUU to approach with an installment framework it (ASUU) asserted was better than IPPIS, the college educators subsided.
