Retirees of the Industrial Training Fund (ITF), who were owed over N314 million in pension arrears have been paid following the intervention of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related of Offences Commission (ICPC).

“The Commission had waded into the matter following a petition by one J .B. Makinde, a concerned retiree who alleged that the Director-General of the parastatal had diverted funds meant for payment of pension arrears for personal use. Investigation by the Commission however revealed that government had not yet released money for such payment as at the time of the petition. The Commission therefore advised that the agitated retirees be paid as soon as government released money for that purpose,” ICPC Media Consultant Folu Olamiti said Thursday.

Olamiti said that “consequent upon the release of the funds by the government, the ITF has now paid the retirees the sum of N314,651,623.17. The amount covered the settlement of 66 months arrears of increment in pension in line with the implementation of the Federal Government circular of 2014.”

ICPC advised petitioners “to always avoid sensationalising, embellishing or fabricating allegations which impugns the integrity of public officers who are wrongly accused of corrupt practices.”
