Pensioners give Governor Wike two weeks deadline to pay their entitlements or face legal action

Published by:

Nigerian pensioners

Retired Civil Servants in Rivers State have given two months deadline for Rivers State government to pay off all the outstanding gratuities of pensioners.

Failure for Government to meet up with the deadline will lead to legal action, they stated.

The State leadership of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners also threatened to shutdown the state in protest if Governor NYESOM WIKE fails to make the welfare of pensioners a project to ameliorate the suffering of pensioners in the state.

Reacting to the alleged statement credited to Governor WIKE at flag-off of road construction at Isiokpo in Ikwerre Local Government on 23rd December last year where the Governor denied that the state government was owing the pensioners, the State Chairman of Pensioners, EDWARD FESTUS-ABIDO said it was not true that the pensioners are not being owed their pensions and gratuities.

CONTE, ZIDANE ARE DEAD MEN WALKING. UNDER FIRE WENGER FINDS SUCCOR IN LIVERPOOL HELPING TO MAINTAIN HIS ‘UNBEATEN ‘ LEGACY.

Published by:

They say football is an unforgiving world, where mistakes are severely punished. The behaviour of the boards of some top clubs in World Football epitomizes this unforgiving spirit. And so it is that two hugely successful coaches of the last few  seasons of two hugely historical clubs find themselves under seriously threatening scrutiny today as the lads in their charges struggle to impress their very demanding fan bases and club owners.
Zinadine Zidane may have been a very successful footballer in his prime, winning the ‘Best Player in The World’s Award in 1995.  The Algeria-born retired French international footballer  may have been one of the best coaches, if not the best,  in the world in the last few years after steering Real Madrid past the shadows of eternal domestic  rivals Barcelona, winning the LA Liga and being the first coach to win the champions League back to back. The fact is that his Real Madrid side are having a shockingly poor season, placed 19 points behind Barcelona and languishing in 4th place in the La Liga table.
As their top player Marcello put it recently, Real are sinking.
Real Madrid are not a club with a history of wasting time to fire their coach when the players fail to deliver the Spanish League title, and its quite clear that Zidane isn’t going to win it this season.
The same thing could be said of Chelsea in the English Premier League. The Blues won the league last season following a remarkable winning run, after a poor early start.  There was more hope amongst Chelsea fans that the team could kick on and give a strong account of themselves in the current season. But it has not been the case so far and the manager, Antonio Conte, who looked invincible for most of last season is beginning to look ordinary now.

Abe, who disclosed this while speaking on a phone-in radio programme on Info 92.3FM,Port Harcourt, said the flight of private investors may not be unconnected with the lack of factors that make business profitable and comfortable in any given environment.

The senator said, “I have said severally that private investment, which is the key to actual economic development of any society, is not flowing into Rivers State.
