IPPMS for the benefit of our government employees – Jigawa administration

Posted by

The government of Jigawa state has stated that there are no intentions of engaging in witch hunts in relation to the enrollment of state employees into the Integrated Personnel Payroll Management System (IPPMS).

This was revealed in an exclusive conversation with divinejams by Amb. Muhammad Salisu Seeker Dutse, who is the Senior Special Assistant, Students Affairs to the Governor of Jigawa State.

The continuous enrollment and verification of government employees into the IPPMS has sparked public outrage, with some seeing it as a strategy to reduce the size of the state workforce.

Allegedly, more than 7,800 unconfirmed government employees had their April paychecks withheld because of the exercise.

Nonetheless, the exercise was conducted with the best of intentions, according to Amb. Salisu.

Sanitizing the system and making it easier to pay employees’ salaries and other entitlements are two of the advantages, he said.

His other point was that the IPPMS was in place to make sure that all employees received their benefits on schedule and without issue.

“It will also assist the government in accurately tracking the number of employees and identifying any miscreants on the state payroll,” he added.
