The federal government has commenced the final verification of former staff of liquidated Nigeria Airways.
The verification exercise will be carried out by the Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit, (PICA), Federal Ministry of Finance, in conjunction with the Ministry of Aviation.
A statement from the federal ministry of finance said the exercise “is the last the ministry of finance would carry out, meant to verify ex- workers of the defunct Nigeria Airways who had genuine claims but were yet to be paid.”
Addressing the ex- workers of Nigeria Airways in Kano, Director, PICA, Bashir Harisu Mohammed, stated that “the exercise is in furtherance of the federal government’s determination to ensuring that all former public workers, especially those of liquidated agencies, who had genuine and legitimate claims were not denied of such.”
The Director stated that PICA, a federal ministry of finance department is responsible for conducting the verification exercise just as it carried out the first verification and payment of the verified staff of the defunct agency in November 2007.
