and local government pension boards to come forward with their verified
lists of pensioners including the arrears involved for payment.
“The authorities of the state and local government’s pension boards should compile list of beneficiaries for payment”. He said.
Mr Samson told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, 20th February, 2016 in Yola that the N1 billion approved by the state from the Paris Club refund was a welcome development that would bring succor to the pensioners.
“I got the information over the weekend that the state government had approved N1 billion as pension arrears, we are happy to hear that. We hope that the about 2,500 retirees from the local governments in the state who had been cleared for many months and were yet to start enjoying their pensions would also benefit from the fund,” Almuru said.ADVERTISEMENTADVERTISEMENTADVERTISEMENT
