NITEL workers: We are verifying membership before payment — BPE Spokesperson


Abuja – Mr Alex Okoh, the Deputy Director, Public Communication, Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), says the bureau has taken steps to verify authentic membership of staff of Nigerian Telecommunication Company (NITEL) before compensation.
Okoh disclosed this on Thursday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after some former staff of NITEL staged a protest demanding compensation at the corporate headquarters of the bureau in Abuja.
He said that the bureau had compensated most of the staff of the company with genuine documents.
“We have little number of them with such claims but we are verifying their membership before payment.
“ At a point, we discover that some of the people we are dealing with are not even staff of NITEL, but they came for the protest demanding for compensation.

“ So we asked them to bring their lists so as to compare it with the list we have and see whether we have a new case for us to treat it,” he said.
Okoh said that the bureau would issue a comprehensive report on the number of people that were compensated from NITEL so far.
He however declined to make comment on whether the bureau had any presidential directive regarding the sale of the Nigerian Telecommunication Company.
“ I am not aware, if we have received any directive from the presidency,” he said. (NAN).
