7,800 Civil Servants Might Lose April Salary Over Verification Process

Tension As IPPIS Rejects Over 17,000 Civil Servants

No fewer than 7800 unverified civil servants might lose their April salaries in Jigawa State.

Naija News understands that this is due to the verification and enrollment of state and local government workers into the integrated personnel Payroll Management System (IPPMS) in the State.

However, reports have indicated that the exercise is characterized by challenges where workers are subjected to injuries during the rushed and ill-organized data capture exercise.

The verification process is also marred by alleged extortion of various sums of money from workers.

The development was disclosed in a communique released after the Joint Emergency State Executive Council (SEC) of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) convened to address the pressing issues by the NLC chairperson Sanusi Alhassan, by the council.

The NLC urged the state government to consider the problems and pay the unverified workers their salaries using the old system until they are successfully captured and verified in the system.

However, the state Deputy Governor, Aminu Usman said the unverified workers are 7783 and out of them 4496 who are J-teach workers have already been screened by SUBEB.

He said the remaining permanent and pensionable workers will also be screened soon.

According to him, ”As I am speaking to you now all these workers have already received their salaries because we have to use the old system to pay them their salaries.”
