President Bola Tinubu has approved the withdrawal of public universities from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS.
The Minister of Education, Prof. Mamman Tahir, announced this following the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday.
Minister of Information and National Orientation Muhammed Idris said: “Today, the universities and other tertiary institutions have gotten a very big relief from the integrated payroll and personnel information system.
“You will recall that the universFG’ll stop strikes in Nigerian universities – Tinubuity authorities and the others have been clamouring for the exemption of the universities and other tertiary institutions from this system.
“Today, Council has graciously approved that. What that means is that going forward, the universities, like the Minister of Education has said, and other tertiary institutions, the polytechnics and colleges of education, will be taken off the IPPIS.
“What that means in simple language is that the university authorities and other tertiary institutions will now be paying their own personnel from their own end instead of relying on the IPPIS.”
