Vanguard reports that the UNN, in a statement by the registrar of the institution, Chris Igbokwe, disclosed that exercise started on Wednesday, November 27, at the Epko convocation arena with the faculty of social sciences being the first to be captured into the system.
The registrar said officers from the office of the accountant-general of the federation on Tuesday, November 26 arrived the institution from Abuja to conduct verification of personnel records and biometric data capture of staff of the University of Nigeria to complete their enrolment into the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
“The exercise will commence today, Wednesday, November 27, 2019, at Ekpo Convocation Arena with a staff of Faculty of The Social Sciences.
