The Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHOCSF) has moved to resolve the issue of 331 officers whose salary were recently suspended for failure to carry out the online records update of the HR Module of Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) and participate in the physical verification exercise.

Spokesman of the OHOCSF, Mallam AbdulGaniyu Aminu, said on Tuesday in Abuja that this is being handled by the Department of IPPIS, service-wide in the OHOCSF.

He said that affected officers can contact some designated staff of the department for guidance on the resolution of the issue.

It would be recalled that a circular with ref: HCSF/CSO/HRM/T/41 dated 9 June, 2021 and signed on behalf of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan by the Permanent Secretary, Career Management Office (CMO), Mahmuda Mamman had said that despite all the various circulars issued in the past, requesting employees of Ministries Departments and Agencies(MDAs) to carry out an online records update on the HR Module of IPPIS verification portal, some employees in the core-MDAs failed to comply with the directives.

The circular added that “As a result of this, they could also not participate in the physical verification exercise that was carried out between June 2018 and December 2020 as their records were not found on the verification portal.”

This led to the stoppage of the affected civil servants.

The HR Module of IPPIS records update exercise was initiated to rid the service of ghost workers, cut down on government expenditure and ensure credible personnel records.
