The Chairman Military Pensions Board (MPB), Commodore SA Lawal, on Tuesday, 15 Dec 2020, visited the Acting Chairman of the National Salaries, Income and Wages Commission (NSIWC) in his office in Abuja to solicit for the speed-up of the process for the issuance of a new payment chart for military retirees incorporating the minimum wage policy of government.
The two agencies had an extensive discussion on the matter. The Acting Chairman of the NSIWC, Mr Ekpo Nta explained that the Commission has taken necessary steps with regards to the proposals for implementation of the minimum wage for pensioners but the Commission is yet to get the necessary feedback from government.
However as a result of the visit and request of the Chairman MPB, the Acting Chairman of NSIWC promised to intensify efforts at getting necessary approvals from relevant stakeholders so that the Commission can promulgate and release appropriate Circulars for the implementation of the new minimum wage for pensioners generally.
