N80bn: Accountant-General’s arrest proves IPPIS is fraud – ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said that the arrest of the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has corroborated its notion that IPPIS is fraud.

The union made this revelation in reaction to Idris’s arrest over alleged money diversion and laundering of N80bn.

ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, while speaking to newsmen, said that the case of fraud should not be swept under the carpet, emphasizing that IPPIS is a fraud used by the Accountant-General to steal money and not control corruption.

He said: “We have said it over and over again that IPPIS is a fraud. We’ve also said that the Accountant-General office is a fraud, and they are using IPPIS to relocate all the fraud activities to one centre, which is the Accountant-General Office and we have been vindicated. That’s our position.”

Osodeke demanded that the EFCC should drag the Accountant-General to court, adding that “corrupt persons deserve punishment in line with Buhari’s administration’s vision.

“This IPPIS, I can tell you as we speak, that many of our members have not been paid for 13 months, 8 months, 9 months, but they’re telling the government that they are using it to control corruption.”
