Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has stated that contrary to reports, his government has not embarked on staggered payment of pensioners in the state.

He, however, explained that what the government did on assumption of office was to ease the problem encountered as a result of dubious record-keeping was to pay pensioners as they were screened and verified.
