Dr Chioma Ejikeme, the Executive Secretary of the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), says President Muhammadu Buhari’s Government is the most friendly to pensioners in the history of Nigeria.
Ejikeme stated this on Friday in Jos at the ongoing verification of pensioners from states in the North-Central.
“If you talk to these pensioners, they will tell you they are very happy with the government of the day, because it has made the prompt payment of their benefits a priority.
“Government is interested and committed to the welfare of the pensioners; it is a first line charge from the President.
“Once there is available fund, government does not delay in paying the entitlements of the pensioners and it will continue to take proper care of them until God calls them home,” she said.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the verification exercise is simultaneously ongoing in Kwara, Niger and Kogi. (NAN)
