The Senior Staff Of Nigeria Polytechnics (SSANIP) has given the Federal Government a 21 Day ultimatum to expedite actions in resolving the disjointed implementation of salary in the polytechnic since the commencement of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
This is contained in a communique signed and read by the National President of SSANIP, Comrade Phillip Ogunsipe at the end of NEC emergency meeting held in Abuja.
The Union further lamented that apart from the disjointed salary issue faced by its members since the implementation of IPPIS in February, 2020, other lingering issues associated with IPPIS include non-release of new Minimum Wage arrears, inconsistencies in the release of third party deductions, non-payment of COVID-19 hazard allowance for health workers, delay in the release of 2018 and 2019 promotion arrears, among others.
The communique stated that failure of the IPPIS to address these highlighted challenges within 21 days from the date of this communique would leave the Union with no option than to review its stance on IPPIS.
While adding that, “Against this backdrop, the Council wishes to call on the relevant agencies Of Government to expedite actions toward resolving these highlighted challenges.
Equally, the Council Wish to frankly state that failure of the IPPIS to address these highlighted challenges within 21 days from the date of this communique would leave the Union with no option than to review its stance on IPPIS”
The Union also called on the Federal Government to urgently address the issue of security of life and property and also the general decay in the entire road network across the country.
