The Director stated that PICA, a Federal Ministry of Finance department is responsible for conducting the verification exercise just as it carried out the first verification and payment of the verified staff of the defunct agency in November 2007, following an earlier approval by the late President Umaru Yar’adua./SHARE THIS
