No going back on IPPIS – finance minister

The federal government stated on Tuesday that there was no going back on President Muhammadu Buhari’s deadline of Oct 31st for public servants to register for the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.  The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, while addressing newsmen after the meeting that was chaired by the Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo stated that Academic Staff Union of Universities must also join the IPPIS. She said, “I didn’t see the notice that ASUU is to go on strike if they are forced to be on the IPPIS. The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has directed that every agency of government, every worker must be on the IPPIS. And my job is to comply with the President’s directive. That is what I do and we are going to do that.” The minister, however, said there was still room for negotiation, adding, “We will be engaging ASUU; we will be discussing with them.”
