Yobe State Governor and Chairman APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni, has approved the sum of N422,179,194.07 for payment of pension and gratuity to 359 Local Government (LG), retirees in the 17 Local Government councils.

This was disclosed in a press statement signed by Mamman Mohammed, Director-General Press Affairs and Media.

“It is to cover the payment in respect of Batch 44, validated for the settlement of families of 89 deceased staff amounting to N125, 264,991.02 and 270 living retirees amounting to N296, 914,203. 05.”

According to a report by Independent News, the beneficiaries were carefully screened after submission by the office of the Auditor General LG, to ensure payment of only genuine beneficiaries.

The payment of these benefits will no doubt contribute to the well being of the beneficiaries and their families after retirement from service.
