SUPPLEMENTARY BUDGET: NA SEEKS N10.4BN FOR PENSIONS
« on: November 07, 2008, 07:01:03 PM »
The National Assembly has proposed N10. 4bn for the payment of pensions and gratuities of retirees nationwide.

This amount, our correspondent learnt, may have been included in the supplementary budget recently passed by the National Assembly.

The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Pensions, Mr.  Rasak Adewusi, made this known on Thursday, when the committee members visited the Police Pensions Office in Lagos.

Adewusi, who had a chat with a cross-section of pensioners who were at the event, said the fund was undergoing normal processing and would be available in due course.

He advised the pensions office to make a documentation of all the retirees, especially those who had one problem or the other with the processing of their papers.

The list, he said, should be made available to the committee and appropriate steps would be taken on it to facilitate the payment of the retirees.

According to him, the committee would work on the list and make recommendations to the appropriate authorities on the beneficiaries.

He said, ?The purpose of our visit is to assess the level of achievement of work undertaken by you from the 2008 Appropriation.

?There is, therefore, the need for your office and the committee to work together to minimise, if not completely eradicate the issue of unpaid or delayed pensions. ?

The Director-General, Police Pensions, Mr.  Essai Dangaba, said his office had already compiled a comprehensive list of police retirees, even till 2009.

He admitted that every retiree who had perfected the necessary documentation of his papers was entitled to his pension and would surely be paid.
