Kogi gives reasons for delay in March pensions
The Government of Kogi State has given an explanation on the reason for the delay in the payment of March pensions to the state retirees.
Kogi State Finance and Budget Planning Commissioner, Asiwaju Idris, who spoke to reporters in Lokoja, said the widely spread rumor that Governor Yahaya Bello had used the March Pension to hold his presidential statement event recently in Abuja was not true.
The commissioner said, on the contrary, there was a delay in the payment of the March pension due to bank logistics.
Idris said the government owed retirees nothing and blamed the difficulty of the March payments on network failures.
“The delay in the payment of pensions in March was due to logistics problems in transferring the money from Banco Acceso to the UBA,” he stressed.
However, he urged the state’s retirees to be patient and avoid anxiety, saying that banks are making efforts to resolve the problems and make their payments as soon as possible.
He pointed out that the state government under the leadership of Bello prioritized the salaries of workers and pensioners, and would do everything possible to guarantee their timely payment, as the state government is known.
