Buhari Pays Federal University Lecturers February, March Withheld Salaries
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday approved the payment of Federal University Lecturers for the months of February and March salaries which had been withheld for non-compliance with the compulsory registration in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
Dr Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, who made this known to the press said the this is to "cushion the deleterious effects of COVID 19 pandemic lockdown on lecturers and members of their family".
The Minister of Finance, Budget and Planning, and the Accountant General of the Federation have been directed to effect this payment. Recall that the president had made it a requirement for payment of salaries for all federal tertiary institutions in the country to enrol in the IPPIS from February 2020.
