'Ahmed out to destroy LG pensioners in Kwara'

Date: 2019-03-06

Retirees under the aegis of Local Government Pensioners Association of Nigeria have accused the Kwara state government of planning to totally annihilating local government pensioners.

The association condemned the discriminatory attitude of the state government as reflected in the state Joint Account Allocation Committee (JAAC)ís Monday meeting.

In a statement Chairman, Secretary and spokesperson of the association Alhaji Isiaka Akanbi, Alhaji K.A Audu and Prince Ademola Ajibade said the state government owes the pensioners over nine- month pension arrears.

The statement reads: "In the meeting, the JAAC allocated 100 percent salaries to the state Universal Education Board (SUBEB) and serving local government staff whereas the pensioners and vulnerable were paid 40 percent pension for the month of February, 2019.

"The association believes that this action was taken as fallout of the conference its members held with the All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership where the pensioners tabled their plights.

"For the purpose of clarity, only 40 percent of monthly pension for the month of February is being paid to local government/local

government education authority pensioners in the state as against the picture painted in the media by the state government that retirees were paid 100 percent for the said month.

"The association therefore condemns this callous attitude of the state government being perpetrated since the assumption of office of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.

"It hereby calls on well-meaning Kwarans to prevail on the state government to ensure that this obnoxious attitude targeted at the aged personnel is put to a stop."
