The spokesperson of the governor, Sanusi Dawakin Tofa, in a statement noted that while making elucidation on the project, the state accountant-general, Abdulkadir Abdussalam, said KIPPIS has the ability to sanitize payroll and pension systems using biometric technology, effective validation technique and it will rid the system of all excesses, infiltration, manipulations of any ilk, impersonations, and unnecessary deductions.
He added that the Incorporated e-payment abilities will save the government unnecessary bank charges, payroll payment problems, block leakages and engenders accountability and transparency in government engagements.
Also, the governor directed the secretary to the state government (SSG) to issue evaluation templates to Commissioners who are expected to fill and submit within next ten days to determine the retention of performing commissioners and relieving of those who underperformed from the state executive council.
