In its bid to sustain the continued success of the anti-corruption crusade at all levels, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) recently intervened and ensured that the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) paid a retiree, Mr. Muhammad Isa Kabir, his over 9-year delayed gratuity.
Mr. Kabir, who launched his complaint through a call to ICPC toll-free line, got his problem satisfactorily solved and his gratuity was fully paid to him on 26th November, 2015.
In a thank you letter to the Commission dated 30th November, 2015, the greatly elated retiree expressed his gratitude to the Chairman of the Commission, Mr Ekpo Nta and his entire staff.
He said “On behalf of myself and my family, I am writing this letter as a humble note of appreciation for the amazing work done on the issue of my nonpayment of gratuity”.
Kabir added “The professionalism portrayed has impressed me immensely. I must say the correct and prompt support extended to me keep me wondering whether ICPC is a government-owned organization or an organized private one. I called the toll-free line and ICPC staff answered all my queries very politely and helpful (sic) throughout the call”.
Commending the ICPC boss, the elated retiree stated “Sir, you should certainly feel proud of such resources, which bring in goodwill for the organization. I appreciate the way you have trained your staff and the way they are following their duty perfectly”.
Responding to these remarks, the ICPC boss stated that the contents of Mr. Kabir’s letter to ICPC had gladdened his heart.
