Several new recruits of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) have reported that they have not received their salary arrears since joining the agency ten months ago.

The personnel's appointment letters are dated August 15, 2023. 

The personnel lamented they were not paid between September 2023 and February 2024, despite being captured on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, PUNCH reports. 

The personnel alleged that they started receiving salary from March 2024, noting that the arrears had not been paid, while calling for the intervention of the Minister of Interior, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo on the matter. 

One of the NIS personnel at the Lagos Command told The PUNCH that, “We resumed induction training in Abuja from September to December 2023.

“Our appointment letters were dated August 15, 2023, but the service started paying salary from March 2024, leaving September, October, November and December 2023, January and February 2024 salaries behind. They have refused to pay us salary arrears for seven months.

Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of the NIS, Mr. Kenneth Udo, said the non-payment of the salary arrears was an omission from the IPPIS.

Udo said, “All Federal Government employees are on the IPPIS; that is where the issue is. There were some omissions, but the service is following up. The service met with the director of IPPIS last week; we are aware of the problem, but we are not responsible for the omission.

“We will surely rectify it; hopefully by the end of this month, the affected officers will receive their money. It is going to be rectified; we are on top of it.”
