Former Nigeria Airways Workers Abroad To Be Paid In London

***As Verification, Payment Begins Monday 

Barring any last minute change, the verification and subsequent payment of the former workers of the defunct Nigeria Airways Limited, NAL, in the Diaspora will begin on Monday, June 24, 2019 in London, United Kingdom, UK.

In a statement on Sunday (today) by the Acting Director of the Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit, PICA, John Waitono, the two weeks exercise which will be conducted by an Inter-Ministerial Team will take place at the Nigerian High Commission Complex in London, UK.

The statement further explained that the Inter-Ministerial Team which will be coordinated by PICA under the Federal Ministry of Finance, will comprise the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Auditor General Office, Accountant General Office, Federal Ministry of Finance, and others.

Waitono said, “The essence of the exercise is to alleviate the hardship being experienced by ex-NAL workers for more than a decade while waiting for their benefits and to save them from the stress and financial burden of traveling to Nigeria for the exercise including other logistics that may be required for them to get their entitlements.”

It would be recalled that a similar exercise had taken place in Kano, Lagos and Enugu centres, consequent upon the approval of N22.6 billion by President Muhammadu Buhari, to pay their entitlements.

Specifically, the Federal Government of Nigeria, FGN, had paid the first 50 per cent of the entitlements to the ex-workers who had completed their verification exercise in October 2018.
