The   Federal   Colleges  of   Education   Academic   Staff   Union   (COEASU) yesterday   raised   an   alarm   over  the   non-inclusion   of   peculiarities   of   the     colleges   of   education   subsector   by   the   Integrated   Payroll   Personal Information System (IPPIS) office.

The   union   had   prior   to   the   implementation,   at   a   meeting   with stakeholders with the IPPIS office, harped on the basis of rejection of the pay platform.

A   statement   signed   by   the   President   of   COEASU,   Comrade   Nuhu Ogirima, said “for the avoidance of doubt, the February salary paid by the federal government did not include the peculiar allowances of the staff of the   subsector,   especially   the   Peculiar   Earned   Academic   Allowance (PEAA).”

“Also not paid are staff on sabbatical leave. In addition, deductions were effected on all staff salaries indiscriminately for the National Housing Fund

(NHF), a voluntary scheme to which most staff did not subscribe.”

The   union   described   the   issue   as   “a   serious   breach   of   trust   and, therefore, considered the FGN betrayal not acceptable.”

While reiterating the initial concern over the use of IPPIS in COE system, the union called on the FGN and OAGF in particular to, as a matter of urgent concern, tackle the issue which is capable of disrupting the smooth running of the COEs.
