Borno State Government has approved funds to settle outstanding gratuities owed to eligible beneficiaries of 2016, including the families of deceased staff from the 27th local government Area.
The committee would have also been responsible for ensuring that all necessary documentation and paperwork was in order and that the beneficiaries were properly identified and verified.
The verification exercise being conducted by the committee is an important step to ensure that the funds are disbursed to the rightful beneficiaries in a fair and transparent manner which took place at the SUBEB office in Maiduguri.
It is also commendable that the Acting Head of Service, Barr. Malam Fannami and his committee members are overseeing the verification exercise to ensure that it is conducted in an efficient and effective manner. This will help to restore confidence in the system and ensure that the benefits are paid to those who are entitled.
