IPPIS: Some teachers were paid overpaid wages and had to pay back, says Emeka Nwajuba, Minister of State for Education.

Education Minister Emeka Nwajiuba commented on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), which is the main reason for the decision to strike by members of the Academic Staff of Universities Union (ASUU).

Nwajuba denied claims that teachers had not received their salaries for 8 months when he appeared on TV’s Politics Today program on Tuesday, November 3. He claimed that some teachers were overpaid and had to pay.

The minister said;

“I consider it a lie to say that the government did not pay them money for eight months. It would be unfair to the government and there would be no need to make this kind of argument because some people may have different levels.

“Some people even received inadequate wages. Some people passed by and had to pay back the debt. There were so many problems with that. “

“When university classes will resume throughout the country,” Nwajuba added;

“Teachers can return to class tomorrow if they say they want to return. There is nothing stopping the teachers from entering the class tomorrow.

“Everything that the government needs to do has been done. If you want to receive a salary, sit on the platform and collect your salary. “
