BPE said in a statement yesterday that the exercise will include certified Next-Of-Kin (NOK) of the deceased ex-staff who were in service between July 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013.
According information on the schedule of the verification exercise published in three national dailies on 26th April 2023, the Bureau announced that the verification will be held in 12 designated centres over four phases.
They are Abuja, Kaduna, Jos, Kano, Yola, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Benin, Ibadan, Ikeja, Eko and Maiduguri.
