Pensions Arrears: Olubadan, 2002 Pensioners Appeal To Oyo Go

Makinde Declares Intention To Run For 2nd Term

The Oyo State Government have been prevailed upon to look into the plights of the 2002 pensioners of the Oyo State Civil Service.

The pensioners under the aegis of Oyo State 2002 Pensioners also appealed to Governor Seyi Makinde, to look into the plights of about 2000 workers retrenched by the late former governor, Alhaji Lam Adesina.

The pensioners who lamented that many of them were dying of hunger on a daily basis revealed that they have not been paid pension for over 13 years.

Making this appeal during a Save Our Soul visit to the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunmade II, the Chairman and Secretary of the group, Mustapha Bamgbade and Olu Afolabi also disclosed that more than half of the group had died due to lack of money to take good care of their health.

Stressing that the group had no reason to quarrel with the state governor, the Chairman, Bamgbade stated that Makinde was doing commendably well in terms of pensioners’ welfare.

He appealed to the Olubadan to step in and reach out to the state governor on their behalf.

He revealed that there was a respite in 2015 but that since then, nothing has been done by way of settling their pension arrears.

The Olubadan in his response urged the state governor, Seyi Makinde to look at their plights and make them happy by paying the outstanding money, therefore invoking the doctrine of continuity in government.
