The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnic (SSANIP) has described the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information (IPPIS) introduced by the Federal Government as fraud, calling for its scrapping.
The SSANIP members made this demand on Thursday during their protest held at The Polytechnic, Ibadan.
The workers, who converged on Ibadan from polytechnics across the South-West also demanded payment of salary arrears of their members in Osun, Ondo, and Ogun states.
The National Vice President of SSANIP, Ayo Bankole, who led scores of other members of the association decried the deduction of pension contributions from their salaries without remitting same to pension fund administration.
“Our demands are the immediate implementation of the NEEDS assessment report and the release of funds for the development of the Polytechnic sub-sector as had been done for the universities, without further delay.
“The necessary inputs of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnics in the proposed new scheme of service by the NBTE, before its release.
“Directed attention to issues of non-payment of complete salaries, arrears of the new minimum wage for staff in the polytechnic sub-sector, hazard and shift duty allowances to medical staff in the polytechnics, draconian tax regime from consolidated rather than basic salaries of our members and non-release of pension funds to the various Pension Funds Administrators.
“A re-prioritisation of policy by the Benue, Ondo, Ogun, Osun, Cross-River and Kano State governments toward the non-payment of complete/outstanding salaries as well as the withholding of union cheque-off dues in the Polytechnics and Colleges of Health Technology.
“The immediate resolution of all lingering issues around the IPPIS platform, even after almost a year since coming on board.
“The immediate constitution of governing councils in all federal and state polytechnics. The immediate recourse to the implementation of the new minimum wage in all state polytechnics in the zone.”
The Zonal Secretary of SSANIP, Mr Sunday Akomolafe, said Nigeria needed to invest massively in the polytechnic sector.
He also said the tax deducted from the salaries of workers was too high.
