The Federal Executive Council (FEC) removed the universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, and other tertiary institutions from the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
The decision was taken by the FEC at its Wednesday meeting Chaired by President Bola Tinubu.
Prof. Tahir Mamman, the Minister of Education, announced the decision while briefing correspondents on the outcome of FEC meeting.
He said the decision should be implemented immediately
“Simply, the president and the council are just concerned about the efficiency of management of the universities and so it has nothing to do with integrity or options of platforms.
“The president cannot understand why Vice Chancellors should be leaving their duty post and run to Abuja to get staff enlisted on IPPIS when they get recruited.
“The basic concern is that universities are governed by laws.
“Those laws give them autonomy in certain respects and most respects and the IPPIS has sort of eroded that autonomy granted universities in accordance with their act,” he said.
