The 19 States Northern  Governors Forum  has called on the  Federal government to expedite  action on the release of the New Nigerian Newspapers pensioners arrears.

The called was a made by the chairman of the Northern States Governors Forum, Governor Shettima Kashim of Borno State,  while reading the communique issued  out  at the end of their meeting  held at Sir Kashim Ibrahim House, on Thursday in Kaduna.

The Forum noted that, the lingering agitation by pensioners of the company and subsequent litigation which came about as a result of the non payment of their pension entitlements, was worrisome.

He described the action as a prelude to effecting payment of the pension arrears.

The Forum therefore, resolved  to meet with the pensioners of the company with a view to find a lasting solution to the issue.

It would be recalled that pensioners of New Nigerian Newspapers dragged the company to court  as a result of non payment of their entitlements, which they claimed, has led to the sudden deaths of some pensioners.
