Nigeria Union of Pensioners Hail Imo State Gov

Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP) has praised Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, for correcting the maladministration of the past administration in the State. The Pensioners, led by the National President Abel Afolayan, described the tenure of the immediate past administration as unfriendly to pensioners.

Afolayan said the past administration left a pension liability of over N56.4 billion in Imo State. He urged the current administration to endeavour to pay pensioners their outstanding arrears. He also disclosed that the recent protest in the State were not by his members, affirming that they believe in dialogue and peaceful negotiation.

The Governor said “I met a cabal when I assumed office. The fraud was huge so we decided on verification to clean up the system. The work slowed down because of COVID-19. We paid 900 pensioners, remaining 900. Soon we will have a clean nominal pension payroll to ensure uninterrupted payment”
