Pensioners still collect N4,000 monthly in Yobe

Yobe State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress, (NLC), has called for the harmonization and upward review of pension in the State because some pensioners are still collecting N4,000 monthly.

Chairman of the Council, Comrade Muktar Musa Tarbutu made the demand while briefing newsman on this year’s May Day celebration in Damaturu.

While commending the Yobe State government for its prompt payment of pension and gratuity in the State despite economic challenges, the Chairman described as inadequate the monthly disbursement of N100 million for the payment of pension and gratuity of retirees. He warned that the narrative if not changed could lead to spill over on monthly basis.

“The Congress enjoined government to implement the harmonized 33 percent pension increase in the State, as well as upward review of hazard allowances for fire fighters in the State”, Tarbutu appealed.

The Acting Head of Civil Service in the State, Alhaji Garba Bilal who graced the occasion, assured the Union that all vital issued raised would be forwarded to the State Governor for necessary action.

He commended the leadership of NLC in the State for maintaining harmonious working relationship between members of the Union and State Government, hence urged them to sustain the tempo for improved productivity.
