Rivers State pensioners plead with Wike over unpaid benefits barely 3 weeks after agreement.
Recall that it is barely three weeks since the organised labour and Rivers State government came to a consensus.
The pensioners said that despite the agreement with the State government nothing had been done.
The Secretary to the Nigerian Union of Pensioners, Rivers State branch; Joseph Agbo spoke on behalf of the pensioners saying,“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.”
