The Plateau State House of Assembly was on Tuesday told how retirees in the state were being owed pensions and gratuities to the tune of N18bn.
The lawmaker representing Jos South Constituency, Mr Dalyop Gwottson, said this when he presented a motion of urgent public importance during plenary on Tuesday.
The Lawmaker called on the state government to urgently pay the retirees their benefits.
Jay FM gathered that the backlog of the gratuity and pension dates back from 2005.
The PDP lawmaker also called on the Assembly to prevail on the state government to direct the relevant agencies to pay the retirees.
