The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) has addressed concerns regarding the alleged removal of over 17,000 core civil servants from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). ASCSN’s national president, Etim Okon, called for calm among the affected workers and assured them that measures were being taken to rectify the situation.
Mr. Okon expressed his concern, noting that many genuine civil servants were unaware of the online verification exercise conducted by the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation (HoSF). He explained that upon receiving information about the situation, the association took action to engage with the government through the HoSF to address the issue.
During their investigation, ASCSN discovered that not only were core civil servants affected, but names of personal assistants, special assistants, and even some ministers were included in the IPPIS portal.
To address this matter, a committee has been formed within the HoSF to handle cases related to the online verification exercise. Mr. Okon urged individuals with valid complaints, particularly those who had previously completed the online verification, to submit scanned copies of their documents to the provided email address.
The HoSF initially set a one-week deadline for full compliance with the verification exercise, but Mr. Okon appealed to the government to consider extending the deadline due to the challenges involved.
The situation highlights the importance of ensuring the accuracy and integrity of payroll and personnel systems within the civil service to prevent errors and unintended consequences for employees.
