There are indications that some members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities are enrolling for the Integrated Personnel Payroll Integrated System contrary to the directive of the union.

Investigations on Wednesday revealed that institutions where lecturers were registering for the IPPIS included the University of Calabar and the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

ASUU had last month opposed the IPPIS despite the Federal Government’s directive that any worker that failed to register for it would not be paid his December salary.

The union directed its members not to enrol for the IPPIS, which the Federal Government said was aimed at fighting corruption through payment of salaries to each employee’s bank account.

But ASUU wondered why the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, the Federal Inland Revenue Service and a few other agencies were not on the IPPIS.

But on Wednesday, the Federal Government said the agencies were not on the platform because they were revenue generating entities. It said 937,000 workers had registered for the IPPIS.

The IPPIS registration started in universities on November 25 and ends on December 7.
