Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson has directed the State Pensions and Gratuities Committee headed by the Head of Service, Sir Fraser Okuoru to expedite action on the payment of the next batch of retirees and pensioners in the State.

He has also urged the committee to be fair and fast in the disbursement of the already released N500, 000,000 (Five Hundred Million Naira) to alleviate the hardship being experienced by pensioners and retirees in the State.

According to the Governor, even though the heavy backlog of unpaid pensions and gratuities were inherited by the present administration, it will not relent in its efforts at ensuring that every genuine retiree is paid his or her benefits to the fullest.

While, appealing to retirees and pensioners to cooperate and appreciate the current efforts of Government, he reaffirmed the resolve of his administration to settle all outstanding gratuities and pensions in batches until the backlog owed is cleared.

Hon. Dickson, who thanked pensioners and retirees for their show of maturity, discipline and understanding, especially with the committee, advised them to exercise patience, and not allow themselves to be used by mischief makers to fan the embers of discord.
