The pre-retirement verification exercise for the federal public servants in Abuja began on a rough note.
A visit to the only verification centre in the capital city showed most officials yet to be verified.
They complained of inadequate officials assigned to verify the huge number of potential retirees.
They fear those unscreened on days assigned to them will create a huge backlog of persons on the waiting list.
Efforts to speak with PENCOM official in charge of the exercise was met with stiff resistance.
