N45BN: Over 900 Ex-Nigeria Airways workers die awaiting severance pay which Buhari approved since Sept, 2017

NO fewer than 900 pensioners of the defunct Nigerian Airways, have died while waiting for payment of their terminal benefits.

Chairman of Nigerian Airways’ branch of the Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP), Mr Sam Ezene, who disclosed this to Pension and You, lamented that one other Airways pensioner died in the morning of February 6, before the commencement of the pensioners’ protest against unpaid N45 billion approved by the Federal Government to pay their severance benefits.

According to him: “Over 900 of our members have unfortunately died since the battle started. In fact, one person died in Lagos in the morning before we started the protest. The 900 we are talking about are those that were reported to us. There were reports of two deaths on February 2. We are not talking about those in the villages that we do not have report on. So, it has been so bad. Most of them died for lack of money to take care of their health and other necessities.”
