The Federal Government on Wednesday approved the exemption of universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and other tertiary institutions of learning from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

It said, henceforth, remunerations to staff members of these institutions would no longer flow through the platform.

The Minister of the Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, disclosed this to State House Correspondents after this week’s Federal Executive Council meeting at the State House, Abuja.

The FG reasoned that the IPPIS does not afford tertiary institutions the freedom to run their affairs, Idris said.
