The Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) has accused the Federal Government of betrayal in the implementation of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

National President of the union Nuhu Ogirima said despite assurances by the government that the union’s peculiarities would be taken into consideration in the implementation of the IPPIS, the February salary paid did not capture such.

He expressed worries that peculiar allowances of the staff of the subsector, especially the peculiar earned academic allowance (PEAA), as well as others were not included in the salary paid to members.

He said, “The attention of the national secretariat has been drawn to the payment of February 2020 salary to staff of the Federal Colleges of Education by the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN).

“From the information available, it is quite evident that the peculiarities of the colleges of education subsector, which the stakeholders’ meetings with IPPIS office, prior to its implementation, harped on as the basis of rejection of the obnoxious pay platform, have not been reflected.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the February salary paid by FGN did not include the peculiar allowances of the staff of the subsector, especially the Peculiar Earned Academic Allowance (PEAA). Also not paid are staffs on sabbatical leave. In addition, deductions were effected on all staff salary indiscriminately for the National Housing Fund (NHF), a voluntary scheme to which most staff did not subscribe.

“Whereas FG removed its own statutory deductions, the non-statutory deduction of staff necessary for their well-being, especially cooperative society contributions were not made.

“Sadly, pension and the imposed obnoxious tax deductions were effected on gross earning of staff, which included non-taxable allowances, as against the basic salary on which such deductions ought to be effected”.Ogirima described this as a serious breach of trust and therefore considered government’s betrayal unacceptable.

The COEASU president also said that an expanded National Executive Council (NEC) of the union has been summoned to deliberate on further steps to take on the IPPIS matter as well as the N17b Needs Assessment and arrears of earned allowances.

“The union shall, for a more robust reaction to this avoidable treat, reconvene the expanded national executive council meeting to deliberate on further necessary actions on IPPIS and other lingering issues of industrial concern, including but not limited to the inconclusive renegotiation, the unfulfilled N15bn Needs Assessment palliative and the sum of N2.5bn unpaid arrears of peculiar allowances.”

The group however warned that the impunity with which the Federal Government engendered this anomaly goes to further heighten the union fears and reinforces the concern over the wanton neglect of the colleges of education subsector by successive administrations, which peaked with the current government.
