The Federal Government may stop the release of funds for the payment of January salaries to federal universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

The move is part of measures aimed at ensuring the effective implementation of the presidential directive on the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

The Accountant-General, Mr Ahmed Idris, had said out of the 94,990 university workers so far enrolled, about 8,146 of them were academic staff while the balance of 86, 844 were non-academic staff.

Branches of the Academic Staff Union of Universities in federal universities across the country had resisted the move, arguing that it was against universities autonomy.

In a letter to the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, the Accountant-General of the Federation said the stoppage of the funds for January salaries to tertiary institutions would help to actualise the President’s directive on IPPIS.

The implication of this is that unlike in the past where bulk release of funds are made to the tertiary institutions for payment of salaries, such would no longer be the case.
