No fewer than 246 staff of the National Examinations Council (NECO) have not been paid since 2015, InfantNG has learnt.
The Chairman, Non-academic Staff Union of the Council, Mohammed Sham-Una Aliyu, blamed the transition to the IPPIS platform for the snag.
Aliyu who made the disclosure during the union’s 10th anniversary at the NECO Headquarters, Minna, Niger State on Thursday, also revealed that various unpaid promotion allowances since 2017 and unpaid transfer allowances dating back to 2015 were all due to the transition to IPPIS.
He said efforts by the management of the council and the union to see to the payment of the salaries of the affected staff have not yielded positive results.
He lamented that some staff who had retired from the council were being owed their promotion allowances and arrears.
Aliyu therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the stoppage of the 25 per cent currently being deducted from the council, noting that the council was not a revenue-generating agency.
He also called for the implementation of the Duty Tour Allowance (DTA) approved by President Buhari as well as compliance to the appropriate kilometre rate and 30 per cent local running as prescribed in the civil service rule.
