According to the Director-General of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Dr. Dasuki Arabi, the federal government-sponsored Integration Personnel and Payroll Information System has so far discovered and removed 70,000 “ghost personnel” from the civil service system.
Arabi stated that since the Treasury Single Account was completely implemented by the Buhari administration, the government had saved at least N220 billion and N10 trillion through it.
This was said by Arabi at the 43rd meeting of the ministerial briefing, which was held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja and hosted by the Presidential Communication Team.
IPPIS has caused the Federal Civil Service to reduce its workforce to 720,000 employees, according to the DG who provided updates on the Bureau’s progress in carrying out government reforms and programs.
“Approximately 70,000 phantom workers have been removed off the payroll with the implementation of IPPIS,” stated Arabi. We have a unique chance to use IPPIS to state that as of right now, 720,000 public servants are employed by Nigeria.
“By mismanaging IPPIS on payroll by government ministries, departments, and agencies, we were able to decrease wastage by more over N220 billion. We have altered the budget’s structure and minimized deficits.
