Kogi Retired Police officers petitions PMB over under payment of pensions and gratuities

ATABOR JULIUS LOKOJA.

Kogi state chapter of Retired Police Officers  under the NPF pension limited has appealed to  Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu and president Muhammadu Buhari to  call the pension fund administrators to order to stop the lingering fraudulent act, torture, and in-inhuman treatment melted to them.

The retired police officers  under the eaiges of Retired Police Officers Forum disclosed  this in Lokoja at a press conference on Wednesday, saying that the pains and agony which the NPF pensions managers has deliberately placed on is becoming unbearable.

Explaining,  the spokepersons of the group,  Elder Lawal Tunde,  Mr  Oke  Shaibu and Joseph Abu stated that the federal government in 2004 created PENCOM limited to cater for all retirees, both in the public and private sectors for efficient handling of retirees’ entitlement, as regard to gratuity, pension and other related circumstances.

The chairman of the forum,  Oke Shaibu added that unfortunately this move was characterised with irregularities and thereafter gave birth to the establishment of the present NPF pension limited which its formation has become  police retirees’ albatross.

“The good missions for creating it is now bastardly turned to punishment and creating easier way for retirees’ untimely death. It was characterised with short payments and non payment of retirees entitlements.

“It’s regrettably to know that under this pension administration,  what is payable to  the retirees as gratuity now is within the range of a million or two million, and #25, 000.00 and #30, 000.00 as your rank implies”, he said.

The Retirees Forum members who said the present situation had made their members not to meet up with basic daily needs, not to talk of provision of shelter hinted that most of the retirees have served more than twenty years before the formation of PENCOM, but that police hierarchy sat on those years so served and base their benefit payments on  the contributions made after its establishment

He  alleged that some retirees who had their promotions since year 2016, till date have their promotion arrears unpaid and embezzled by the police authority

The Retired Police Officers Forum therefore prayed for, among others that since the NPF pensions limited and the entire police authority have  in its entirely failed to meet with the basic requirements that masterminded the establishment of this branch,  “the entire Nigerian police force be made to opt out from the PENCOM systems to the old system, like their sister agencies”.

The ex officers urged the president Muhammadu Buhari to direct the managers to within six months  to offset  all outstanding benefits that is due to all retirees before the establishment of the PENCOM in 2004 be worked out and paid to the affected retirees.
