The discrepancies include mismatch of account names, closed dormant accounts and invalid bank accounts.

“Those whose names appeared should report to their District Headquarters between June 6 and 11 with supporting documents in order to verify their respective account details,” said Ankunda.

These should have among others things discharge certificate proof of opening or holding a bank account and identification documents.

He reiterated that only those names in mentioned news papers should turn up, adding. “those who have not yet been paid and their names are not among those published should remain patient as arrangements are made to effect their payments in future.”
