Buhari Approves Payment Of Pension To Retired Biafra Police by kitaatita: 3:44pm On Oct 18, 2017
Succour has come the way of police officers who served in the defunct Biafran Police during the 30 months Nigeria Civil war as President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the payment of pension to the police officers who were granted presidential pardon in 2000.
The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) Wednesday announced that about 162 of such retired police officers and 57 Next of Kin of those who have died will be paid their pension benefits in the first phase of the payment with effect from Friday, October 20, 2017 in Enugu.

A statement from the management of PTAD said after their pardon, a verification exercise was conducted for them by the defunct Police Pension office and recently by PTAD and the Police Service Commission.

The statement reads: “The general public would recall that Nigeria witnessed an ugly civil war between July, 1967 and January, 1970 and as a result of that unfortunate period in our history, some members of the Armed Forces, the Nigeria Police and paramilitary officers who took part with the Secessionist were dismissed from the service.

“The dismissal of those officers was commuted to retirement in the year 2000 through a Presidential Amnesty granted on 29th May, 2000 by the Administration of the then President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
“A verification exercise was conducted for the pardoned officers by the defunct Police Pension Office and recently PTAD on one hand and the Police Service Commission on the other.

“Despite the Presidential pardon and verification of these officers, many of them remained unpaid years after the pardon. However, the present administration under the able leadership of President, Muhammadu Buhari has graciously given approval for the payment of pension entitlements to these officers and their Next of Kin.
PTAD is commencing the payment of pension benefits to the retired war affected police officers on Friday October 20, 2017 in Enugu. 162 officers will be payrolled and 57 Next of Kin who have also not been paid their death benefits will be paid in the first batch.

Abeg dis na story for the gods, the Buhari we know can't do anything good. this is part of the propaganda to calm the nerves of south easterners down but the answer is hell NO because dey can't be deceived twice.

No victor,No vanquished is still fresh in our minds.

The breakaway republic of Biafra actually existed for about 30 months between 1967 and 1970. They rejoined Nigeria after they were defeated.

Kudos to PMB for the kind gesture. This is a good move to douse the ethnic tensions a little bit. Funny enough, OBJ pardoned them in 2000 and Buhari is now paying them. In between 2000 and today, a certain Azikiwe ruled for 6 years and never cared about their plight.

What is needed is referendum and not these crumbs. Also what is needed is a public speech/interview by the old general so we can know he is who he is and making all these moves the cabal is claiming he is making
