PTAD LAUDS MPB FOR OPERATIONAL TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY

The Executive Secretary of the Pensions Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), Dr Chioma Ejikeime, has commended the leadership of the Military Pensions Board (MPB) for enthroning transparency and accountability in the administration of military pensions in the country.

Dr Ejikeime gave the commendation during her visit to the office of the Chairman of the MPB in Abuja recently, assuring of PTAD’s readiness to understudy the MPB so as to be able to replicate the same model for the administration of pensions at PTAD.

The Executive Secretary, who revealed that the MPB has continued to blaze the trail in providing practicable solutions in pensions administration in the country, noted that her visit to the Board was to “see the good things being done by the MPB herself” and replicate such good things in her agency.

“MPB is doing everything right at the moment and the PTAD will be delighted to learn from the MPB in order to add value to what the PTAD is already doing,” she said.

In his remarks, the Chairman, MPB, Major Gen. Ahmadu Bala Adamu, expressed delight to receive the new Executive Secretary of PTAD and her team in his office.

The Chairman thanked the Executive Secretary and her team for their commendations while noting that the achievements so far recorded by the MPB wouldn’t have been possible without the needed support by the Federal Government, the Ministry of Defence, the Defence Headquarters and other relevant agencies.

Major General Adamu added that in order to ensure that all complaints and enquiries about payment of retirement benefits to military pensioners as well as Next of Kind (NOKs) are resolved promptly, the MPB established a state-of-the-art Call Centre at the Headquarters of the Board.

Speaking further, the MBP Chairman explained that the Board is at the verge of installing an electronic system for the verification of military pensioners before the end of the third quarter of 2020.

When installed, Adamu said the electronic verification system will replace the current manual system of verification of pensioners with all its attendant cost and avoidable hardships the manual system is causing the nation’s heroes.
