Nigerian-Union-Pensioners-300x162

The Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), Osun State Chapter have pleaded with the state government to pay the senior civil servants 8 months pension and gratuities owed to retirees who left service between the year 2009 to 2012 ‎.

The pensioners who came to the sports stadium in Osogbo to stage a special prayer session said they’d rather pray than protest for their outstanding pensions and other benefits owed by the government which is over 12 billion naira.

The State Chairman of the NUP, Dr John Olunlade and other pensioners told newsmen ‎that the inability of the state government to pay their entitlements had resulted to avoidable deaths of many of their members in the state.

According to the senior citizens, the Osun State government has been paying the retirees half ‎pensions since July 2015, accumulating to about eight months presently owed.

They however, urged the government to look into their plight particularly in the payment of the gratuities owed.
