Tertiary Institutions: Mamman pledges to carry out presidential directives regarding IPPIS

Prof. Tahir Mamman, Minister of Education, stated that the ministry would work within the scope of the legislation to ensure the full implementation of the presidential order on the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) as it concerns tertiary institutions in the nation.

Mamman made the vow at a meeting with the leadership of the committee of Provosts of Colleges of Education in Abuja on Tuesday.

The minister also committed to maintain a continuous and constructive relationship with the committee to preserve industrial peace and harmony in the country’s colleges of education.

Dr Yusuf Sununu, Minister of State for Education, praised the Colleges of Education’s leadership for their constructive attitudes.

Sununu stated that the Ministry will return the gesture to create a cordial working relationship with all colleges of education across the country.

He urged the leadership of the Colleges of Education and other key stakeholders to work together with the Ministry to boost student enrollment in colleges.

He mentioned that this commitment would ensure a consistent supply of qualified educators in the foundational levels of the country’s education system.

Sununu reiterated the ministry’s dedication to creating incentives for teachers and actively promoting enrollment in Colleges of Education.

In a previous discussion, Prof. Faruk Haruna, the committee’s chairman, appealed to the minister to expedite the implementation of the presidential directive to remove Colleges of Education from the IPPIS.

It was reported by NAN that on December 12, 2023, President Tinubu approved the removal of public universities from the IPPIS payment platform.

Furthermore, NAN highlighted that in October 2022, ASUU rejected the ongoing use of IPPIS for disbursing entitlements to university lecturers.
