Severance benefits: BPE re-schedules ex-PHCN Staff verification


The Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) has rescheduled the verification of ex-staff of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) for September 9, 2023.

Ms. Amina Tukur, the Head, Public Communications, in a statement yesterday, disclosed that the exercise which would also include the certified Next-of-Kin (NOK) of the deceased ex-staff who were in service between July 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013, was originally scheduled for Monday, May 15, 2023.

According to the Bureau, phase two of the exercise earlier scheduled for Monday, June 19, 2023, would now take place on Monday, June 12, 2023 to Saturday, June 24, 2023, in Jos, Ibadan, Yola, Kano and Benin.

It said that the change was to enable the Muslim faithful to observe the Eid Kabir celebration coming up in June.

It advised all those concerned to take the exercise seriously as there would be no other exercise after it.

“The defunct PHCN’s bonafide ex-staff, their relevant Unions and all other key stakeholders are to please note that there will be no other verification exercise once this is concluded”, BPE said.

Recall that the Bureau had earlier released the schedule for  the exercise which is a prelude to  the payment of the agreed 16-month Severance benefits to the bona-fide ex-staff of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) and certified Next-of-Kin (NOK).

The exercise would be held in 12 designated centres in  four phases across the country at  Abuja, Kaduna, Jos, Kano, Yola, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Benin, Ibadan, Ikeja, Eko and Maiduguri.
