The Chairman of the board, Rear Adm. Saburi Lawal, in a statement issued in Abuja, said that the payment was made on Thursday. Lawal said the third installment was paid to eligible military retirees who were active on the board’s data base.
He added that it was also in fulfillment of the agreement reached between the board and the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning (FMoFBNP) for quarterly release of the appropriated sum within the year.
The chairman said that all next – of – kins (NOKs) of deceased military pensioners, who were entitled to the same arrears had also been fully paid. He advised all concerned military pensioners to contact their banks for their entitlements.
Lawal said the MPB would also like to thank our esteemed military retirees for their patience, understanding and continued support, and pledged to ensure the payment of the fourth and final tranche of the arrears before the end of the year.
