Some pensioners in Nasarawa State, have decried the selective and piecemeal payment of their gratuity by the State Government.

The pensioners, who preferred anonymity, made this allegation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lafia.

According to the pensioners, it is only when you are related to someone in the pension bureau or have the blessing of a top government official that you can get your gratuity.

They alleged that some of them, who retired in 1995 prior to the creation of the state, were yet to get their gratuity more than 21 years after the emergence of the state.

“Some of us, who retired from active service more than ten years ago are yet to be given our gratuity but those with ‘godfathers’ who retired just in 2016 have received their gratuity.

“What is the justification for paying people, who retired in 2016 and living those who retired more than 10 to 21 years ago,” they queried.

They also claimed that pensioners, who were lucky to be shortlisted for payment get their gratuity piecemeal of N100,000.

The pensioners, therefore, implored the State Government to address the uneven development and ensure that they are not shortchanged.

However, when contacted, Mr Abdullahi Sani-Oseze, the Director-General, Nasarawa State Pension Bureau, debunked the allegation.

Sani-Oseze, told NAN that the management of the bureau was working round the clock to ensure that pensioners get their gratuity as soon as funds are released.
