FMB: Release Our National Housing Fund

Posted: May 7, 2015 at 12:00 am   /   by   /   comments (0)

We are using this medium to call the attention of the Presidency to the plight of the retired and disengaged staff of NITEL/MTEL as regards the payment of our National Housing Fund. The payment schedule has been with this bank since May 2014 but up till today we have not heard anything from them.

We went to their Lagos Office along Marina (Kontagora House) but we were directed to their head office in Abuja. The report from Abuja now is that the money in the bank had been collected by unknown persons. We are confused.

In December 2014, few people that passed through PUBLIC COMPLAINTS COMMISSION were paid.
Where do we go from here? Do you want all of us to tow the same line before our entitlements can be given to us? It is inhuman for the elected officials to ill-treat those who voted them into power. We are appealing to the President, National Assembly members and all the stakeholders to stand and fight our just cause. Long live Nigeria!
