Pay N20bn owed in pension, gratuity before hand over, NLC urges Borno government

The Nigeria Labour Congress in Borno State on Wednesday appealed to Governor Kashim Shettima to clear the N20 billion being owed pensioners in gratuity and pension before he leaves office.

The NLC Chairman in the state, Mr Titus Abana, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, in Maiduguri.

Abana said that the last time gratuity of retirees was paid in the state, was in 2013, noting that all efforts to get the government to pay after that time was frustrated.
