The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has commenced verification of ex-workers of Savannah Sugar Company, Numan, Adamawa.
The Executive Secretary of PTAD, Mrs Sharon Ikeazor, said in a statement on Wednesday in Yola that the exercise was
directed by President Muhammadu Buhari as part of efforts to ensure that ex workers of privatised/defunct companies

She explained that verification of former staff of Savannah Sugar Company, Numan, Adamawa, started on Monday and would last for 10 days.
She noted that the affected staff were those disengaged in 2002, expected to present their letter of first appointment, last promotion or salary increase/upgrade, letter of disengagement/evidence of payment by BPE, one month bank statement, BVN slip and valid means of identification such as national ID card, voter card, driving lincence or international passport.
