The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Bauchi State chapter, has called on Governor Bala Mohammed to upset outstanding balance of retirement benefits to ease the suffering of retired workers.

Chairman of the NLC in the state, Comrade Danjuma Saleh, made the call at the opening ceremony of the 23 Delegate conference held at Command Guest House, Bauchi, on Tuesday. Although Saleh, who was represented by Dauda Shuaibu, Chairman of Joint Negotiations Council (JNC) commended the Governor for paying part of the retirement benefits, he appealed! for the balance to be paid timely to ease the sufferings of the affected retirees.

The backlog of retirement benefits inherited from previous administrations runs into billions of naira, with many yet to get their benefits years after retirement.

“It is a source of pride for one to serve his fatherland and be compensated at the end of his career so as to ease his life and that of his dependents’ the NLC Chairman said

He described the relationship between Governor Bala Mohammed and the organised labour in the state as cordial, saying it has resulted in the continuous existence of industrial peace and harmony.

He appealed to the governor to sustain the cordial relationship.
