    In its bid at sanitizing the payment of pensioners and eliminating ghost recipients, the Pension Transitional Administration Directorate (PTAD) saved money for the Federal Government by removing no fewer than 15,600 from the payroll.

    PTAD’s Executive Secretary, Sharon Ikeazor made this known to newsmen in Kaduna on Wednesday when she stormed the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna.
    Ikeazor explained that the names were removed in December 2016 because the accounts were not connected to any BVN numbers.
    “When we took them out of the payroll, there was no much outcry and only few were actually genuine cases and they were put back on the payroll,” she said.
    Speaking further, she said that the present verification which is taking place simultaneously in Kaduna and Lagos is for three privatised parastatals.
    “We are conducting the entire verification for civil servants, police, parastatals and para military. Civil service verification is expected to be concluded in 2018. We just began that of parastatals and hope to conclude it in 2018,” she said.
    On the success of the ongoing verification, she said that well articulated planning is making it successful.
    “We don’t have challenges because we planned and strategized ahead to have a seamless and smooth exercise,” she added.
