Rivers State Pensioners Cry-out over Four Years Pension Arrears

Pensioners in Rivers State have appealed to Governor Nyesom Wike to pay their four (4) year pension arrears and gratuities to help change their pitiable living conditions.

The pensioners, in a statement by Mr Lucky Ati, their spokesman, regretted that some had not received anything since 2015 but also blamed the immediate past administration of the state for their plight.

The pensioners said, we have written several letters to Gov. Nyesom Wike to no avail, the administration preceding Wike enacted the contributory pension without preparations and plans for smooth take off; this has caused us untold hardship and even deaths, we thanked Wike for repealing the pension law but we are now pleading with him to come to our aid by paying the arrears.
