Over 17,000 Federal Civil Servants Face Salary Delays Due to IPPIS Records Issue

IPPIS Records Deletion Puts Salaries at Risk

The Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) in Nigeria has come under scrutiny as over 17,000 federal civil servants find themselves at risk of not receiving their salaries.

This dire situation has arisen due to the alleged deletion of their records from the IPPIS database.

Failure to Comply with Verification Exercise

The affected workers are believed to have fallen foul of a verification exercise spanning more than five years, conducted by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF).

This exercise was aimed at ensuring accurate and up-to-date personnel records.

Discrepancies in Verification Process

While some of the affected employees claim they did comply with the verification exercise, they still found themselves removed from the IPPIS system.

Furthermore, discrepancies in the verification process have been noted, with the names of Personal Assistants (PAs), Special Advisers (SAs), and even Ministers from successive governments appearing in the IPPIS portal.

Reassurance from the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN)

The National President of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN), Tommy Etim Okon, has reassured the affected individuals. He urged them to remain calm, as measures have already been taken to address the situation.

One-Week Window for Rectification

According to Okon, the Office of the Head of Service has granted a one-week window for affected civil servants with genuine claims to rectify their records.

Those who were erroneously omitted from the IPPIS portal are encouraged to submit their documents to the provided email for prompt action.

Online Verification Process

Those who had initially completed the online verification on the IPPIS portal are advised to submit scanned copies of their documents to the designated email address.

This step is crucial in resolving the issues surrounding their payroll status.

Challenges and Social-Economic Impact

The ASCSN recognizes the challenges faced by its members, especially given the current socio-economic climate.

Okon emphasized the importance of addressing the concerns promptly and fairly.

Appeal for an Extended Time Frame

The ASCSN has also appealed to the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation to consider extending the time frame.

This extension would allow individuals with valid complaints sufficient time to take necessary actions and rectify their records.

The situation regarding the deletion of IPPIS records and the potential non-payment of salaries highlights the importance of accurate personnel data management and the need for swift resolution to ensure the financial stability of affected civil servants
