FG set for verification of pensioners in Rivers, Bayelsa

FG set for verification of pensioners in Rivers, Bayelsa

The federal gov­ernment is set to commence the verification of all pen­sion matters in Rivers and Bayelsa States.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Executive Sec­retary, Pension Tran­sitional Arrangement Directorate, Barr Sharon Ikeazor, yesterday in Abuja.
The statement indi­cated that the verifica­tion exercise will take place in Port-Harcourt to cover pensioners in Rivers State, while Yen­agoa to cover pension­ers for Bayelsa on Janu­ary 16, 2017.
PTAD had earlier concluded verification of Civil Service Pen­sioners from the North-West and South-East zones in the country in 2015.
As a follow up, pen­sioners in the North East states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe and Taraba states were re­cently verified between November 28 and De­cember 6, 2016.
“Apart from identi­fying ghost pensioners and putting a stop to fraudulent payments, the exercise facilitat­ed the restoration of monthly pension pay­ments to genuine pen­sioners previously re­moved from the payroll, including those who had never been paid any pension or gratuity.
