NUP praises FG Commitment To Pensioners

Pensioners led by Vice President, Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), Mr Ayo Kumapayi, have praised the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, especially through the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), for prompt payment of entitlement of retirees, like never before.

Kumapayi gave this commendation at the South-West Stakeholders’ Forum, organized by PTAD, held in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Pensioners led by Vice President, Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), Mr Ayo Kumapayi, have praised the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, especially through the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), for prompt payment of entitlement of retirees, like never before.

Aside from prompt payment of pensions, Kumapayi also lauded the federal government for implementing 33 per cent consequential increase in pensions whereas several state governments have failed to implement.

Kumapayi also praised for the current payment system where retirees get paid as and when due, directly in their account, while lauding Dr Chioma Ejikeme-led PTAD for stamping out ghost pensioners as well as fraudsters.
Kumapayi assured the PTAD that the NUP was committed to recovery of all pension assets to enable the Federal Government to have more funds to pay pensioners.

Emphatically, Chairman, South-West Zonal Congress, NUP, Dr Stephen Fatusi remarked that the Buhari administration was the best so far as it concerns attending to the lot of pensioners.

He described as worthy of commendation the fact that the Buhari administration has twice effected a 33 per cent increase in pensions, implemented consequential adjustment in entitlements of pensioners as well as cleared backlog of pensions.

Fatusi said: “In all fairness, God and man, let people say all they like about President Muhammadu Buhari, the Buhari administration has been the best so far as it concerns a lot of pensioners.

“Over the years, you heard of pensioners dropping dead while queueing for their entitlements. As soon as Buhari assumed office, maybe because he is an old man, he appreciates the lot of the pensioners, he sympathises with their lot.

“The information we got is that he gave a marching order to his subordinates who are in charge of pensions to pay pensioners as and when due. He told them not to joke with pensions and they have been paying.”

Other pensioners to include Mrs Florence Ademoyegun, Mr Koyede Sule and Mr Rasaq Salami were also full of gratitude to the Buhari administration for prompt payment of pensions.

The pensioners also lauded the PTAD leadership especially the new “I AM ALIVE” pensioners’ verification and confirmation web-based platform which they described easy and stress-free.
