The attention of the University of Maiduguri (Unimaid) Management has been drawn to rumours and misconception that officials from the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation are in the University to enroll fresh appointees to the Integrated payroll and Personnel Information System (PPIS).
This development is of serious concern to the University because it is calculated to compromise its integrity, being one of the few leading tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
For the avoidance of doubt, the University did not officially authorize the issuance of letters of fresh appointment to anyone for the current enrollment exercise to the IPPIS.
The only individuals that are qualified to be captured in the ongoing exercise are those who had earlier been properly screened and issued with duly cleared appointment letters, but could not be enrolled to the platform, as required by the Federal Government.
Individuals or groups that have given financial inducement or any form of gratification to any member staff of the University in the name of the purported recruitment exercise should take necessary actions to recover their resources from such unauthorized staff.
The University will not take responsibility for any mischievous use of its name or crest.
In view of the above, members of the public are strongly advised to disregard such rumours and false claims because they are part of the familiar, well-orchestrated attempts to tarnish the good image cf the University.
