Nigerian government set to pay last batch of Nigeria Airways ex-workers.

The Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit, (PICA) of the Federal Ministry of Finance, in conjunction with the Ministry of Aviation, in Kano, has commenced the verification of ex-workers of Nigeria Airways Limited (in Liquidation).

According to a statement by the Director of Press and Public Relations, Mr Hassan Dodo in Abuja on Wednesday, the exercise which is the last the Ministry would be carrying out, “is meant to verify ex-workers of the defunct Nigeria Airways who had genuine claims but were yet to be paid”.

 

The statement explained that the Director of PICA, Mr Bashir Harisu Mohammed, while addressing the ex-workers said the exercise was in furtherance of the Federal Government’s determination to ensuring that all former public workers, especially those of liquidated agencies, who had genuine and legitimate claims were not denied of such.

The Director stated that PICA, a Federal Ministry of Finance Department is responsible for conducting the verification exercise just as it carried out the first verification and payment of the verified staff of the defunct agency in November 2007, following earlier approval by the late President Umaru Yar’adua.
