Pensioners Callout CBN, PTAD over Payment of Outstanding Benefits

Pensioners under the Voice of Nigeria Pensioners Association (VONPA), have have demanded that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) effect payment of their outstanding benefits.

Chairman of the senior citizens, Comrade Sylvester Okafor, bemoaned that while payment has been made for January 2016, December 2015 has curiously been skipped, even as February 2016 remains outstanding.

“Many of our members are dying of illnesses and need urgent attention,” said Okafor, adding: “We are appealing to CBN to save us from untimely death. We are also urging the Federal Government to look into the matter and save us from this terrible experience.”
