Aso-Rock Security personnel owed MONTHS OF UNPAID ALLOWANCES!
Can someone please inform those in charge of protecting the President and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, that basic allowance due to security officials in Aso-Rock has not been paid in months. They include “RATION CASH ALLOWANCE” “DRESSING FOR BG’S ALLOWANCE” and other unnamed allowances.
Aso Rock security is comprised of and not limited to GUARDS’ BRIGADE, Directorate of State Security Service, Nigerian Army, Nigerian Police and the Presidential “STRIKE FORCE”
With the president’s decision to bring in Israeli Security agents into Aso-Rock, it would be in the National Interest to take a look at the welfare of not just security operatives within Aso-Rock but also those charged to protect the Nigerian Public
