The director of IPPIS, Olufehinti Olusegun, said the process of capturing university staff (lecturers included) is currently ongoing by the federal government despite protests by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The Nation reports that the director said that once the processes of capturing is concluded there would be cleansing of data for payrolling.
He also said that the IPPIS team will again review the data collected to find out if there are people captured in the process that are not supposed to be there.
“We don’t publish wild data from the field to prepare the payroll it has to be reviewed to be sure it meets certain criteria,” Olusegun said.
“We will cross the bridge when we get there. I don’t know their fate, I only know the people that are on the platform."
“I can only speak for people that have been captured it is beyond me to know if they will be paid their December salary the government will do what it has to do when the time comes," he said.
