The Federal Executive Council FEC has approved the exemption of Universities and other tertiary institutions from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System IPPIS.

Arising from the FEC meeting presided over by President Bola Tinubu, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman said the council approved it as part of measures to ensure the efficient management of the nation’s University system.

The minister said authorities of tertiary institutions will now be paying their personnel from their own end without further reliance on IPPIS.

Recall that the federal government, in October 2006, introduced the IPPIS as one of its reform initiatives for transparency, and accountability.

However, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) kicked against the enrollment of public university lecturers on the system, calling for University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS).

The Minster said the council further approved other sundry memos on education, including funds for the conduct of the National Examination Council NECO’s forthcoming examinations.
