The House of Representatives has called for an investigation into the alleged non-payment of pension to Federal Civil Service retirees by the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD).
According to a statement from the green chamber, the lawmakers passed a resolution in Abuja on Tuesday, ordering the investigation after a member from Edo State, Sergius Ose-Ogun, moved a motion on the matter.
In their resolution, they decided to invite the Head of Service of the Federation, Accountant-General of the Federation, Director-General of the National Pension Commission (NPC), and the Executive Secretary of PTAD.
The lawmakers asked the individuals to appear before the House Committees on Pension and Public Service Matters to “provide explanations for the non-payment of pensions and gratuities to retired federal civil servants for nine months.”
According to them, the investigation will last four weeks, following which a report will be laid before the House for consideration.
