Naira Rain As Obi Doles Millions to Towns and Pensioners

 [ Masterweb Reports ] - Governor Peter Obi’s administration has expanded over nineteen billion naira in payment of gratuity of retired workers. Governor Peter Obi disclosed this while distributing cheques totaling 713 Million naira to 516 Local Government Pensioners and primary school teachers who retired between April and December last year, for their gratuity.

He expressed satisfaction that his government has streamlined the system that henceforth every worker will receive gratuity at retirement with delay.


In a similar development, Governor Peter Obi has distributed cheques of 2 Million Naira each to the 178 communities in the State. Governor Obi who distributed the cheques at the Women Development Centre, Awka said one million naira is for maintenance of security and another one million is for palliative work. He explained that effective security network remains one of the top priority of his administration and announced that security vehicles will soon be distributed to all communities.


The Governor who regretted that the impact of the fund for palliative is yet to be felt in some communities urged traditional rulers and presidents General to ensure that the money is judiciously used to improve road in their area. He stressed the need for communities to be more involved in keeping the environment clean and ensure proper waste disposal.


The commissioner for Local Governor Affairs, Mrs. Azuka Enemuo said the Obi administration had put in place effective security network to create conducive business environment and is repositioning the State to take its pride of state in the country.
