The National Industrial Court, Abuja, has fixed Oct.5 to hear a case of alleged unpaid pension instituted by Roland Imasuen and four others against the National Pension Commission.
The other claimants are Ogbeide Stanley, Andrew Aigbogun, Rosemay Odiase and Felix Orhue.
At the resumed hearing on Thursday, the Judge, Justice Edith Agbakoba, fixed the date to enable the claimants’ counsel, Mr Gabriel Ofen-Imu open his clients’ case.
The claimants, who retired from the Court of Appeal in 1994, joined the Appeal Court and the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation in the suit.
The retirees also joined the Secretary to Government of the Federation and the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice.
The claimants are asking the court to prevail on the respondents to pay their unpaid pension and other entitlements.
They alleged that while some had been paid, others were still outstanding.
The third respondent was represented by Mr David Agbonifo while Mr E. Awa represented the National Pension Commission.
