FG approves payment of Nigeria Airways staff entitlements

The Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, said on Wednesdaythe Federal Government has approved the payment of N45billion severance package to former staff of the defunct Nigeria Airways.






“I’m happy to announce that Mr. President has approved N45 billion which has been confirmed to be the entitlements of these workers and Ministry of Finance has been instructed to pay the money. The ministry wrote to me last week that they have received the instruction to pay these workers, and therefore, they are setting up the modalities to pay, he said.


The national carrier was liquidated by ex- President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration in 2005, and the workers had been embarking on protests nationwide over their unpaid entitlements.

Na wa. Most of them must have passed away while some will still be in the hospital. In all thank God that the ones alive, will collect their entitlements. It is well with our country Nigeria.

Anon 09:08am....Its still great news, sad that your dad passed on (may his soul RIP). get the neccessary papers e.g death certificate etc and match to the payment venue I am sure they will ask for a letter of administartion if your dad died intestate or you just might be lucky that he had a next of kin instruction stated in his file. please dont let this moeny go into the corrupt hands of officials who did not work for it. it belongs to your family.

But do you know his next of kin is qualified to collect the money... your family should find out from his co-workers the documents you need then include his death certificate you will get it if you fight had for it. It's your right
