Kano Governor launches biometric software for civil servants

Gov. Abba Kabir Yusuf

Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has on Tuesday launched Kano Integrated Personal and Payroll Information System (KIPPIS) at the commencement of the twelfth Executive Council meeting held in Council chamber, Government House, Kano.

Commenting after his integration as pioneer enrollee, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf said the system was introduced to centralise payments by the state, and local  governments and operate e-financing in tandem with global financial practice.

Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf urged the members  of the KIPPIS implementation committee to ensure the capturing of  civil servants, pensioners and all political appointees for smooth  and hitche-free  running of the project across the State.

While making elucidation on the project, the State Accountant General, Alhaji 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 government unnecessary bank charges, payroll payment problems, block leakages and engenders accountability and transparency  in government engagements.

The Governor also directed the  "Secretary to the State Government ( SSG) to issue evaluation templates to Commissioners who are expected to fill and submits within next ten days to determine the retention of performing Commissioners and relieving of those who underperformed from the state executive council."

"The directive was based on a policy of his administration he made known at the swearing-in of the Commissioners to evaluate their performance after every six months to ensure quality service delivery," said a statement by the Governor's spokesman, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa.
