The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TCN, has asked that the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC, to investigate governors owing salaries and pensions.

The TUC president, Quadri Olaleye made the call at the 12th Triennial National Delegates Conference on Tuesday in Abuja.

He expressed worry over the huge number of states owing pension, salaries and allowances in arrears after collecting refund, bailout funds, budget support fund and the Paris debt refund.

“We condemn it and demand that the EFCC and ICPC investigate and bring the governors to book.

“It’s our thought that paying retirees their entitlement will assist to curb corruption because when people know that they will get their entitlements when they retire, it will check stealing.”

Olaleye noted that the governors who claimed that they had no money to pay, have money to pay their predecessors and also fund “their reckless lifestyle’.

“For those of them withholding the contributory pension deductions from workers salaries without remitting same to their Pension Fund Administration (PFAs), we warn that it is illegal and attracts some penalties,” Olaleye said.
