A total of 1,169 workers of the
defunct Power Holding Company of
Nigeria are yet to be paid their
terminal benefits, the Bureau of
Public Enterprises has said.
Director General of BPE, Mr.
Benjamin Dikki, disclosed this

on Privatisation, according to a
statement made available to our
correspondent by Head of Public
Communication at the privatisation
agency, Mr. Chigbo Anichebe, in
Abuja on Wednesday.
