Director, Finance and Administration, Jigawa state Pensions Board, Alhaji Musa Muhammed Yalleman has said the N711, 459,439.86 meant for December 2017 has been paid to 419 retirees.
Yalleman stated this yesterday while addressing reporters in his office, explaining that the payment meant the entitlement for December last year was postponed to January as a result of the sudden demise of its Executive Secretary.
The acting Executive Secretary of the Board disclosed that the government approved payment of the money to local and state governments’ retirees, including gratuity and benefits of the dead from October to December last year.
He stated that the total amount meant for only those who spent 35 years in service or attained 60 years of age.
