ICPC Helps Retiree Recover N4.1m Delayed Terminal Benefits

A retired staff of Notore Chemical Industries, Mr. Abdulrahman Danbaba has been paid N4.1 million being terminal benefits owed him by the company following the intervention of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

Mr. Danbaba, who retired as Regional Manager, North-West, had petitioned ICPC claiming that the company owed him N4, 062, 048.07 being the balance of his terminal benefits after working for them for six years in Kaduna State. He also alleged that his Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax was not remitted to the appropriate authorities by the company.

Consequently, the Commission investigated the petition and found that the company had defaulted in the payment of PAYE tax for its staff to the Kaduna State Board of Internal Revenue, as well as the payment of the terminal benefits of the former Regional Manager, North-West.

ICPC, upon conclusion of investigation, prevailed on Notore Chemical Industries to pay all the outstanding benefits of Mr. Danbaba and to remit the PAYE tax for six of its staff in Kaduna State to the Kaduna State Board of Internal Revenue.

Both the Kaduna State Board of Internal Revenue and Mr. Danbaba have written to the Commission to confirm the receipt of the payments from Notore Chemical Industries.

It is worthy to note that ICPC continues to impact on institutions and citizens  across the board. In the recent past, the Commission has recovered unpaid taxes and helped a number of oppressed Nigerians to get their legitimate entitlements which they were deprived of due to either bureaucratic bottlenecks or outright victimization by unscrupulous public officers.
