A statement by the Force spokesman, CSP Jimoh Moshood in Abuja on Monday, said this was in compliance with the Federal Government’s financial reforms.
Moshood said that in August 2017, Nasarawa, Kebbi, Gombe, Kaduna, Bayelsa, Ekiti, Abia and Ogun commands were selected as the pilot Commands for the migration to the IPPIS platform for payment of monthly salary to police personnel.
Moshood added that since then all challenges recorded by these commands were addressed and payments of Salaries have been without hitches.
He said that to ensure prompt solution to all complaints that might arise, the command finance officers have been trained to
respond to cases promptly.
The spokesman said that the Force Budget Department had ensured that all the 42 Mechanised Salary Section (MSS) centres across the country appoint desk officers to receive complaints.
He said that such complaints would be forwarded to the IPPIS at the Office of the Accountant General Of the Federation for prompt solution.
He said that challenges such as under-payment, omission of names on payroll, non-payment and over-payment being experienced in payment of February salary have been taken up with the OAGF.
Moshood said that no policeman protested in any state of the country over migration to IPPIS.
“The Nigeria Police Force is a disciplined organisation and will not allow any situation to degenerate into disturbance of public peace and breakdown of law and order anywhere in the country,he said.
He advised all personnel who have genuine complaints to forward them through the Desk Officers in their various commands. (NAN)
