The union while reiterating that the office of the Accountant-General is an instrument of fraud stated that the case should not be covered up as corrupt people ought to dance to the tune of the law.

ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke called on the EFCC to carry out a thorough investigation and scrutiny of Idris’s case, take him to court, and thrive to achieve a meaningful outcome.

Osodeke also told the Federal Government to discard the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) being used for the payment of federal workers’ salaries, alleging that it is being used to relocate all the fraud activities to one centre which is the Accountant-General Office.

According to him, some members of the union haven’t been paid for 13, 9, and 8 months due to IPPIS.

“We’ve 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’re just using IPPIS to relocate all the fraud activities to one centre which is the Accountant-General Office and we have been vindicated. That is our position.

“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 are telling the government that they are using it to control corruption.”
