Settlements of Retired Civil Servants Gratuity: Why Katsina State Government Is Selective? – By Barr. Mairo Gafai, Kabir

I write on behalf of retired Civil Servants of Katsina State (both in State and Local Government Areas), especially those who retired from December, 2016 to date.

Our investigation shown that those who retired from December 2016 to December 2017 were screened earlier this year, specifically between February-March and are waiting for payment of their benefits but only few were being settled (not up to ¼) despite the fact that His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari’s promised that government would settle them in April this year.

Why is government playing chickens with retires benefit? Only last month, the Federal Government has release the final tranche of Paris Club to States and Local Government Areas and Mr. President has made it clear that such money should be channeled to payment of staff arrears as well as settlement of pension/gratuity to deserving retirees.

This category of people have spent their productive years serving the Government and the people Katsina State while some are no more, they left dependents and are anxious to get paid in order to live a normal live.

Moreover, there is issue of casual staff who served the state for over a decade but they are to be employed as promised by His Excellency during his campaign in 2015.

Finally, we hope His Excellency would use his good office and ensure that the Government do the needful as 2019 election is around the corner and people would choose their leaders who really care about their welfare.
