Channels Television announced that employees who have yet to be identified under the Federal Government’s Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) system risk not being paid by the end of October 2019.
This was announced by President Muhammadu Buhari during the presentation of the 2020 budget to the joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday.
President Buhari announced that an order had been given to avoid every federal government’s salary in an attempt to reduce personnel costs.
“We shall also sustain our efforts in managing personnel costs.
“Accordingly, I have directed the stoppage of the salary of any Federal Government staff that is not captured on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) platform by the end of October 2019.”
He added that strict compliance has been issued to all government agencies as regards fresh recruitment and severe sanctions will be issued to erring agencies.
“All agencies must obtain the necessary approvals before embarking on any fresh recruitment and any contraventions of these directives shall attract severe sanctions.”
