Garnishee Orders: Benue Govt Appeals To Pensioners To Withdraw Court Cases

In its bid to stop the series of garnishee orders against the state government, Gov. Hyacinth Alia, has appealed to pensioners to withdraw all cases filed against it in court.

Some of the pensioners, who had sought relief from the court against the government over arrears of gratuities and pensions, were given consent judgment and subsequent garnishee orders.

Governor Alia, who was represented by the Commissioner for Justice and Public Order, Mr Fidelis Mnyim, made the appeal yesterday in Makurdi, during a stakeholders meeting between the government and the pensioners.

The governor recalled that the arrears of pension allowances and gratuities of the state and local government pensioners, amounting to N163.7 billion, which was inherited from the previous administration, would be gradually settled.

He also reminded the pensioners that he had been faithful to his campaign promises to them, by paying their allowances monthly, adding that those who had retired after he assumed office had been paid their entitlements.

A garnishee order is a judicial proceeding, in which a creditor asks the court to order a third party to turn over to the creditor any of the debtor’s property in possession of that third party.
