The accountant-general of the federation (AGF), Mr. Ahmed Idris, has threatened severe sanctions on Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) yet to comply with President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to move their payroll to the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS). He said they either comply now or be ready for the consequences of their action, as the treasury will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the president’s directive is fully complied with.
Idris gave the warning when he hosted the acting inspector- general of police (AIG), Mr. Abubakar Adamu, at the Treasury House.
In a statement from the AGF’s office, he commended the Nigeria Police for showing example by complying with the directive of the president on the pay system.
He said: “I want to place on record that the Nigerian Police has fully been integrated into the IPPIS platform and their successful enrolment has paved the way for the enrolment of the Nigerian military, which has further demonstrated the robustness of the platform and our avowed commitment to a transparent, accountable and efficient management of the Nation’s funds in line with global best practice.”
In his remarks, Mohammed extolled the cordial relationship existing between the Nigerian Police and the OAGF, describing it as “a very strategic partnership in the business of policing the nation.”
He commended Idris for his exemplary leadership which has culminated in the effective implementation of the various financial reforms which has helped the police in meeting most its financial challenges.
