Legit.ng gathered that Idris explained that in their operations, the fraudsters make telephone calls to unsuspecting public service staff and retirees, claiming that they are directors of IPPIS and that they could facilitate the payment of the staff or retiree’s outstanding arrears.
He said the fraudsters, who usually demand money for their proposed services, also tell the unsuspecting persons about a 2020 IPPIS recruitment form and refer such persons to a supposed IPPIS recruitment portal on www.ippis.gov.ng.
Idris advised members of the public to ignore calls, publications and/or online messages from these fraudsters to avoid falling victims and to report such activities to the security agencies.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Nigeria senators on Tuesday, February 18, expressed anger over the failure of Idris Ahmed, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF), to present the 2015 Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) details for scrutiny.
It was reported that the senators on the panel of public account during an audit queried against the office of the AGF and questioned why Adiro Emmanuel, a director from the AGF’s office could not answer questions put forward to him by members of the Senate panel.
