The Government of Kaduna State has approved the release of N3.1 billion for the payment of gratuity for retirees and death benefits for families of the deceased under the Defined Benefit Scheme and the Contributory Pension Scheme.

The Chief Press Secretary, Mohammed Shehu, in a statement on Thursday, said Gov Uba Sani gave the approval in line with  his commitment to easing the hardship faced by the “elderly, who are among the state’s most vulnerable.”

“Governor Sani remains committed to ensuring that upon retirement, workers who have served Kaduna State diligently, have full access to what is rightfully theirs.

“The Kaduna State Government through the State Pension Bureau is resolute in ensuring the continuity of the release of these payments for gratuity and death benefits to beneficiaries in the state.

” The release of these funds will aid in ameliorating the ripple effects of current economic realities, especially for the elderly who have retired from active service,” the statement said.
