GOOD NEWS!!! Buhari Releases Over N500 Billion, Set To Become The Best Nigerian President Ever

A budgetary provision of N536.7 billion in the 2020 National Appropriation Bill, now before the National Assembly, to cater for the payment of gratuities and monthly pensions of retired Federal public servants, is a humanitarian gesture of immense proportions, the Buhari Media Organisation, BMO, has said.

The BMO, described the proposal as a right step in the right direction, aimed at lifting more Nigerians out of poverty.

According to the group, this is another step in providing governance with a human face, and to lift more Nigerians out of poverty.

It also noted the provision of N16.567 billion and N48.8 billion, to take care of ex-workers of the defunct Nigeria Airways, who were denied their gratuities, and for the pension Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, respectively.
In a statement signed by Niyi Akinsiju and Casssidy Madueke, its Chairman and Secretary, respectively, the BMO expressed hope that the National Assembly would consider the proposal speedily and in good faith, as it has the capacity to improve the living conditions of retirees, who had spent their most useful years in the service of the country.

“President Buhari has once more shown his magnanimity, love and affection for workers. This is the first time such huge provisions are captured in the country’s national budget. 

“This conscious singular act and several others since President Buhari came on board in 2015, have put a stop to retirees protesting or waiting on queues endlessly, to get what was ordinarily due to them.”

The group said that it is regrettable, the manner and way in which retirees were abandoned by previous governments during the most trying times of their lives, thereby making them very vulnerable.

“We note with appreciation, the capacity of the President to clear all backlog of pensions and gratuities for all retired Federal workers in the country. This, he has again demonstrated, by directing the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate, PTAD, to conduct verification of workers in some privatised government enterprises, and other retirees with a backlog of pensions, with a view to paying them off in earnest.
“It is never in doubt that President Buhari has been consistent with his sympathetic and friendly stand with Nigerian public servants, since his Military days”, the BMO added.
