Must read

One federal civil servant has been killed in an accident involving a bus which carried 20 workers from Maiduguri, Borno State capital, to Abuja.

The accident reportedly occurred around Gombe, on Tuesday morning, while the workers were on their way to Abuja for the compulsory Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) registration exercise.

“At least one of our colleagues has been killed while on their way from Maiduguri to Abuja for the mandatory IPPIS registration exercise. The accident occurred in Gombe,” one of the affected civil servants said on Tuesday.


About 17,000 affected federal civil servants from across the country were required to go to Abuja for the exercise; meanwhile, their salaries had been delayed.

According to a circular, all the affected workers are mandated to show up for a physical exercise in Abuja from Monday, October 16 to Friday, October 27, 2023, at the Public Service Institute of Nigeria (PSIN), Kubwa Expressway, Abuja.

The registration exercise for the IPPIS started in May 2017 and it was repeated in subsequent years and concluded in April 2023.


At the end of the exercise, the Accountant General of the Federation was directed to pay only civil servants whose records had been verified and uploaded on the IPPIS portal.
