Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, stated that the Federal Government stands its ground to migrating all government personnel, agencies and institutions from the Consolidated Revenue Fund to the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System platform.
This was said on Monday by the Director Consolidated Account/IPSAS, office of the Accountant General, Salawu Zubairu, while speaking at the training of IPPIS role players which held at Ibom Icon Hotel and Golf Resort, in Uyo.
Idris, who was unavoidably absent but represented by Zubairu, however, said that the task has not been an easy one due to the peculiarities of some of these agencies and institutions.
“It is heart-warming that since the inception of the IPPIS payment platform, there has been a significant level of transparency in government payroll administration. Furthermore, the IPPIS has brought greater efficiency into planning for personnel emoluments as well as planning for personnel budget.
“In the light of the benefits of the system, the Federal Government resolved to migrate all government personnel, agencies and institutions that draw their personnel cost from the Consolidated Revenue Fund to the IPPIS platform.
“This task, which was saddled on the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, has not been an easy one due to peculiarities of some of these agencies and institutions.
“However, the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation has recorded significant successes in this regard. Let me assure you, that the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation will not rest on this mandate to integrate all government employees and agencies into the IPPIS,” Idris said.
