After 12 years of uncertainty post privatization, the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has added 9,215 Ex-workers of NITEL/Mtel to the Monthly Pension payroll in fulfillment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to ensure all pensioners get their entitlements.

Payments to 1,385 Next of Kins (NoKs) will follow shortly as the Directorate concludes the computation of deceased pensioners’ benefits.

PTAD Executive Secretary, Sharon Ikeazor, had in August, 2018 assured the Ex-workers that they would put on the monthly pension payroll to begin receiving their pensions for life because “the greatest injustice is not to pay a worker their wages after meritorious service to their father land”.

She further assured them that payment of their pension arrears will be made as funds are allocated and released.

PTAD has so far verified and recently payrolled Delta Steel Company (DSC), Nigeria Reinsurance and NICON Insurance under its Parastatals Pension Department.
