Lecturers of Federal Universities who are yet to register under the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) will get their February and March payment, President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered.
The president has also directed the Minister of Finance, Budget and Planning, and the Accountant General of the Federation, to effect the directive.
This was made known in a statement by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
The payment will cushion the effects of coronavirus on lecturers and their dependents, according to the statement.
The labour minister added that all the Vice-Chancellors were asked to revalidate the affected lecturers’ Bank Verification Numbers and forward to the Accountant General of the Federation for the payments.
