Out of the total number, 2,772 workers have successfully gone through the online and physical verification process and have been reinstated into the Federal Government’s payroll.

He urged the government to expedite the resolution of issues so that the December salary of the civil servants undergoing reintegration into the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System is not delayed.

In addressing the affected members, Okon assured them that the union is taking lawful steps to swiftly resolve the issues they are facing.

During a press briefing in Abuja, the union leader mentioned, “The physical verification exercise for the ‘17,000’ core civil servants, who were delisted from the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, was completed in October 2023. However, only those who had previously completed their verification but were mistakenly delisted have received their restored salaries, while 5,000 civil servants still have discrepancies regarding their dates of first appointment and dates of birth.”

He further disclosed, “A total of 2,772 have been verified and sent to IPPIS for payment without any issues. The names of the 5,000 workers with discrepancies are to be confirmed by their Directors of Human Resources.

“Six teams are diligently working to ensure the timely completion of the exercise. It is advisable for public servants to regularly check the HOS website for updates. We have confirmed that the salary for the month of November 2023 has been concluded, so those affected will not receive their November salary.

“However, efforts are being made by the HOSF to ensure that those cleared will receive their December 2023 salaries, including arrears from September.

“We appeal to the Federal Government, through the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, to expedite action to prevent delays in December salaries.”
