1.    The Military Pensions Board (MPB) wishes to inform our esteemed
pensioners to disregard, in totality, the rumour making the rounds in
the media, that a specific date has been fixed for the proposed payment
of three months balance of arrears to pensioners by the MPB. For the
avoidance of doubt, the MPB wishes to state unequivocally that no
particular date has been fixed for the payment yet.

2.    However, the Chairman of the Board, Major General Ahmadu Bala Adamu
and his team are working tirelessly and continuously liaising with
appropriate agencies to ensure the prompt payment of the remaining
3-months of arrears, in furtherance of the Federal Government?s resolve
to improve the welfare of military pensioners in the country.

3.    Accordingly, the MPB hereby implores all military retirees to
continue to support the Board as it continues to ensure that all retired
personnel of the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) get their deserved

4.    Finally, retirees are encouraged to always stick to the established
official means of communication provided by the Board for authentic
information. This includes direct calls to the Board?s official Call
Centre and the Public Relations Officer. While thanking you for your
usual support, please accept the assurances and the esteemed regards of
the Chairman, MPB.
