Hey there, middle schoolers! We have some exciting news to share with you. The Kano State Government has started paying off a whopping N6 billion in outstanding gratuities to pensioners. Isn’t that great?
The Governor of Kano State, Abba Yusuf, made this announcement on Saturday during a special event at the Government House in Kano. He explained that his administration inherited a huge backlog of retiree pensions and benefits. Sadly, many pensioners passed away without receiving their rightful payments.
Yusuf also mentioned that the previous administration neglected various sectors, including making illegal deductions from monthly pension payments. But guess what? During his campaign, he promised to pay pension gratuities and stop these unfair deductions. And now, he’s keeping his promise!
This is just the beginning, my friends. The Governor assured everyone that the payments will continue until the entire backlog of over N48 billion in pension and gratuities is cleared. That’s a lot of money, right?
The Governor had some wise words for the pensioners. He urged them to use their benefits wisely. It’s essential to make smart choices with the money they receive.
So, let’s celebrate this fantastic news for the pensioners in Kano State. It’s heartwarming to see the government taking care of its retirees and fulfilling its promises. Way to go, Kano State!
