Former vice-president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari, for approving the payment of pension to police personnel, who served under the defunct Biafran police during the civil war.

The Police officers were granted presidential pardon in 2000.

Atiku, writing on his Twitter page, said Buhari’s move “shows a commitment to peace and unity”.

He tweeted: “I commend @NGRPresident @MBuhari for ordering payment of pensions to pardoned Biafran soldiers. It shows unity!

“This move shows a commitment to peace, unity and our shared belief in one Nigeria, with justice and equity for all.”

The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) on Wednesday announced that about 162 of such retired police officers and 57 Next of Kin will be paid their benefits in the first phase, which kicks off this month.

- A former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari

- Atiku said the president's approval of pension for officers who served the defunct Biafra police is a commitment to peace building

After terminating the contract, Atiku is now humble. No more criticizing Buhari's government because of 2019 ambition.

Smart man, since Buhari is already after his head. He quickly changed the song.
Anyways, Buhari paid that pension because of Anambra governorship election, and not because he truly love those soldiers or Igbo Modify: Obviously, I've given Zealous Zombies something to feed on. Anyway, I'm not an ipob or igbo. So Think before you quote me.

The president has make a very good move to have accept the wandered ones into the nation payroll despite to have worked and policed for different minor unreal country. Atiku only want sympathy from that part of Nigeria for his ambition which I know would never work.

Fool yourself not for that's what any typical politician who knows his/her onions ought to do whilst still testing the waters of public opinion (especially in a country never that divided) in prelude to vying for office.

BUHARI APPROVES PAYMENT OF PENSION TO BIAFRAN EX-SERVICE MEN; ANOTHER LIE.

During the Biafran war, thousands of Igbos serving in the Nigerian armed forces switched over to fight on the side of their Biafran brethren. The then head of state, Yakubu Gowon announced their sack. The war was later won and lost.

When President Obasanjo came on board, he approved the conversion of the sack of Biafran ex-service men to retirement, making them eligible for pension and other benefits. That decision was officially gazzeted.

During the immediate past govt, the Otueke born Zoologist, President Jonathan, continued the payment of their pension in batches. In fact, Jonathan, it was, who made sure the ex-Biafran police and military men were treated as though they served 35 years on Nigerian side before retiring.

The report that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the payment of pension to Biafran ex-service men is nothing but one of those demonic propaganda for which the Buhari govt has come to be identified with.

What happened few days ago was that the office of the Pension Board known as PTAD stumbled upon 167 names, (just 167) of the Biafran ex-service men who were cleared since 2014 but yet to be paid.

Just 167!

Buhari #ChildrenOfChange simply hijacked the story and went to the village CNN square with the very misleading impression that Buhari has approved the payment of pension to Biafran ex-service men.

What is Buhari's business with the routine duty of the Pension Board?

Why should any right thinking Igbo man or woman expect Ndigbo to roll out the drum for Buhari simply because the Pension Board stumbled upon the names of 167 Biafrans who were biometically cleared to receive pension years ago especially after what this same Buhari did to Igbo youths in Abia state few weeks ago with his supporter of APC army??

Have we suddenly lost our dignity as Ndigbo?

Why should we praise an ethno-religious bigot who was busy directing World Bank to his Northern region at the exact time he was directing his murderous army to our own region to kill, maim and drown us
