The arrest of the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has buttressed Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) notion that IPPIS is fraud.

ASUU made this assertion while reacting to Idris’s arrest over alleged money laundering and diversion of N80bn.

ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, who spoke on the development, 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.

Said Osodeke: “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 deserved punishment in line with Buhari’s administration’s vision.

Stressed he: “This IPPIS, I can tell you as we speak, that many of our members have not been paid for 13 months, eight months, nine months, but they’re telling the government that they are using it to control corruption”.
