Ex-Naval officers threaten protest over unpaid allowances
Written by News Desk on March 29, 2023
Away from politics, some retired personnel of the Nigerian Navy have vowed to storm the headquarters of the service to protest the non-payment of their terminal leave and packing allowances.
The retired Naval personnel who all are of the 1984 set and retired in 2020 fumed over their endless wait to get their owed allowances while those who retired after them had been paid.
The retirees say they had written to the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, on three occasions and visited the national headquarters to call his attention to their plight, adding that all had been to no avail.
In a letter dated March 16 by the Coalition Of Concerned Veterans and obtained by journalists, the aggrieved retirees urged the CNS to pay up to avoid a ‘historic embarrassment of protest’ at the Naval headquarters.
