Rivers Pensioners Beg Governor Wike Over Unpaid Benefits

Barely three weeks after the organised labour and the Rivers Government reached an agreement, which led to the suspension of a planned labour strike, pensioners again hit the streets, demanding unpaid emoluments.The pensioners, who resumed their plea to the state government, said despite reaching an agreement to set up a tripartite committee to address their plights, nothing had been done yet.Speaking on behalf of the senior citizens, the Secretary to the Nigerian Union of Pensioners, Rivers State branch, Joseph Agbo, said the pensioners had yet to know their fate concerning the unpaid benefits. He said, “When we had a meeting, it was agreed that the issue of pension, including gratuity, non-payment of death benefits; all were included, but until this moment, we don’t know our fate. The committee the government said it will set up; up till now, they have not done it, nothing has been done. “We have written to the Secretary to the State Government, requesting an audience so that we can explain our problems because if you are not a pensioner, you would not know much about the problems we face.“But up till now, our letter is just there, they don’t care. The government has no regard for their fathers; that is why they have no regard for pensioners in this state.”Source https://punchng.com/rivers-pensioners-beg-wike-over-unpaid-benefits/?amp=1
