By Oduola Funmi, Abuja

The Executive Secretary of Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), Chioma Ejikeme has disclosed that the agency is expected to verify over 7,000 pensioners.

Speaking exclusively with Nigerian NewsDirect in Abuja recently, she said, “we are expecting like over 7,000 pensioners to be verified. I will not be able to give the breakdown sector by sector because that’s part of what we are here to do and identify.

“The verification exercise will last for six days.”

According to her, “We just started today (Monday) with the FCT Abuja verification. So far so good I wouldn’t say we have any challenges in attending to the pensioners.

“We are trying to put together all the data that we have been collected and after analysing the data, we can now be able to come out with the accurate result of the verification.”
