OFFICE OF ACCOUNTANT GENERAL REACTS TO CLAIMS BY ASUU ON SALARY DEDUCTION
The Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) has reacted to series of reports on claims by tertiary institutions unions, led by ASUU, that IPPIS was deducting their salaries and allowances to the extent that their take-home is now only 50% or less of what they earn.
They said the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) Tax is a statutory tax deduction paid by all salary earners and that IPPIS applied the correct rate in compliance with the constitution.
They also added that the issue is cheap propaganda by ASUU to denigrate IPPIS for obvious reasons.
The OAGF assured all the tertiary institution staff that they are always willing and ready to serve them as best as possible, but pleaded for their understanding and cooperation.
