Tinubu Approves Exit Of Public Varsities, Polytechnics From IPPIS 

President Bola Tinubu has given a nod for public universities captured in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, to exit the payment platform.

The Minister of Education, Prof. Mamman Tahir, disclosed the information on Wednesday, shortly after the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Bola Tinubu.

Offering more explanations on the presidential directive, 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 university 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.”
