Federal government begs retired military officers protesting unpaid allowances

The federal government has requested more time from military members protesting their unpaid Security Debarment Allowance. On Tuesday in Abuja, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Defence, Ibrahim Abubakar Kana, addressed the retired military officers. The official denied that the money had been cleared, but payment had been delayed by the ministry.

“As the Ministry’s Accounting Officer, I urge you to promote peace and return home.” “We will respond as soon as possible,” he promised. Kana assured the protesters that the Minister of Defense, Maj Gen Bashir Salihi Magashi (rtd), was aware of their situation.

The permanent secretary assuaged their concerns about a new verification process before payment by stating that the existing registry of all veterans would be used. General Leo Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff, praised Abubakar Kana for settling the impasse and commended the protesters for their peaceful behavior.

Biodun Albert, the veterans’ spokesperson, blamed the misinformation and insinuations on a communication breakdown between them and the authorities. The retired personnel agreed to return home and remove the barricade they had erected at the Defense Headquarters’ entrance.
