The Federal government has moved to resolve the issue of 331 officers whose salary were recently suspended for failure to carry out the online records update of the Human Resource Module of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
In statement signed by the Director Press in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the federation, Mr. Abdulganiyu Aminu says, their failure to participate in the physical verification exercise led to the suspension.
The affected officers have now been advised to contact the appropriate authority of the department for guidance on the resolution of the issue.
It notes that despite all the various circulars issued in the past, requesting employees of Ministries Departments and Agencies(MDAs) to carry out an online records update on the HR Module of IPPIS verification portal, some employees in the core-MDAs failed to comply with the directives.
The statement added that “As a result of this, they could also not participate in the physical verification exercise that was carried out between June 2018 and December 2020 as their records were not found on the verification portal.
The statement states that the HR Module of IPPIS records update exercise was initiated to rid the service of ghost workers, cut down on government expenditure and ensure credible personnel records.
