Taraba Government Owes Retired Workers N11bn Pension, Gratuity

The Chairman of Taraba State chapter of the Nigeria Labour congress (NLC), Comrade Gambo Peter  has said that the Taraba State Government is owing retired civil servants  over N11billion pension arrears and gratuity. 

He told Daily Trust in an interview that state civil servants and local government workers that retired from service last year were yet to get their gratuity and pension. Comrade Peter said lack of payment of retirement benefits had caused social trauma to retired  workers in the state.
 He said some of the retired workers were facing serious hardship, as a result of which many of them have died.
