Pensioners of FAAN call for immediate payment of 50% balance monthly entitlement

MMIA, Lagos

The Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP), Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) branch is irked over the 50% payment of their monthly entitlements to their members instead of the usual 100%.
The Union who described the development as ‘wicked’ has called on the FAAN Management to immediate pay the balance 50% with 7 days.
Comrade Emeke Njoku, Secretary of NUP FAAN branch in an interview said, the Pensioners leave from hand to mouth with their monthly little pension which they could barely survive on.
“We want that money reversed within 7 days, we have mobilized our members, it is not done, it is on heard and how much is pension. We shall take action inimical to the organization after 7 days without reversal” 
Njoku explained that NUP FAAN branch had lost 10 of their members as a result of their inability to feed and pay hospital bills. 
“Last time they increased their condition of service they allocated money to themselves, how much did they give pensioners and they went ahead to start slashing pensions without increment in the last 11 years for pensioners.”

It will be recalled last week before the sallah festivities FAAN staff from grade level 1-7 were paid full salary for the month of July while staff on level 8 and above were paid 50% of their salary with the promise from the Management that the balance will be paid as soon as possible.

The unions had expressed shock at the development when a memo detailing the decision of the Management were sent to the staff.
