NITEL/MTEL Pensioners Association North West Zone has commended
President Muhammed Buhari and the Federal Government over the prompt
payment of their monthly pension and deceased members next of kin since October last year.
This was contained in a statement signed by its Zonal Chairman and Zonal Secretary, Comrade (Engr.) Samuel Idowu Jonathan and Comrade Yeekeen Adeyemi Suleiman respectively and made available to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
The statement added that words are not enough to express their profound appreciation to the President and the government for their kind gesture which has gone a long way to ameliorate their sufferings.
The association which comprises workers of the two organizations who were retired before privatization and those disengaged in 2006 also appeal to the Federal Government to fast track the payment of their seven years arrears to save them from sufferings.
“Many of our members are dead while those alive have found themselves in difficulty situation and could not pay their children school fees, medical bills and house rent,” the statement reads
The association also thanked the Ministers of Finance Communications and the Management of Pension Transitional Arrangement Department (PTAD) and other relevant agencies for their gesture and prays for peace and peaceful co-existence to reign supreme in our country.
The association, however, distanced itself from a purported legal action undertaking by a group known as the Association of Former Telecoms Employers of Nigeria (ATEN), which they said is unknown to them adding that they were loyal to the leadership of Comrade Ibrahim Dasuki Nakande currently the Interim National Chairman of their association they concluded.
