Arrest of Accountant-General proves IPPIS is fraud – ASUU

 The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said the arrest of the Federation’s Accountant-General, Ahmed Idris, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, reinforced its idea that IPPIS was a fraud.

The union said this while reacting to Idris’s arrest over alleged money laundering and diversion of Eighty billion naira

ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, speaking with DailyTrust, warned that the case should not be covered up, stating that IPPIS is just a fraud used by the Accountant-General to siphon funds 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 take 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.
