The Federal Government has assured ex-workers of the defunct Nigeria Airways that it is committed to the payment of their entitlements after they are audited.

The Permanent Secretary, Special Duties, Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mohammed Dikwa said this while inspecting Lagos and Kano centres where the exercise was holding simultaneously.

A statement by the Deputy Director, Information, Olajide Oshundun, made this known.

Represented by Deputy Director Procurement, Izerebu John, Dikwa said that the Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit, PICA had commenced a week-long mop up verification for the ex-workers who were not audited during the previous exercise.

He added that the exercise was meant to ensure that all eligible beneficiaries were audited and paid their entitlements to ensure that all former workers of the defunct airways got their benefits.

He, however, advised them to cooperate with the verifiers and ensure that they provided all the documents required for the exercise.
