No fewer than 5,000 federal civil servants who have discrepancies on their date of first appointment and date of birth, may not receive their December salary, National President, Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN), Tommy Okon has said.


Okon, however, explained that the union was working with the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation and it has forwarded the names of the affected workers to their Directors of Human Resources (DHR) for confirmation.

The ASCSN president said 2,772 workers had been successfully restored back to the payroll after concluding their online and physical verification exercise.


He called on the federal government to expedite and conclude actions to ensure that December salary of the civil servants, who are undergoing different exercises to be reintegrated into the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), is not delayed.

Okon urged members of ASCSN who are affected by the reintegration process to exercise patience, promising that the union was doing everything within the ambit of the law to ensure that the issues are resolved expeditiously.


Addressing the journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, the union leader said: “The physical verification exercise of the ‘17,000’ Core Civil Servants who were delisted from the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) was concluded in October, 2023 and those involved were in the high spirit waiting for their monthly salary which was stopped since September, 2023 to be restored.


“As of today, only those who had earlier completed their verification exercise but were mistakenly delisted have had their salaries restored while 5,000 of civil servants still have discrepancies on their date of First Appointment and date of birth.


“However, effort is been made by the HOSF to ensure that those cleared will get their salaries for December, 2023 including the arrears from September.
