Retirees charge Rivers State Government to pay their entitlements

Spread the love

Rivers State pensioners have appealed to the State Government to save them from hunger by paying them their retirement benefits. Pensioners in Rivers state held a protest recently in Port Harcourt to express their pain over the non-payment of their gratuities. The pensioners under the” Rivers State pensioners union” expressed disappointment over what they described as the “nonchalant attitude “of the governor towards their plight. One of them who spoke anonymously told our correspondent that “despite the biometric exercise that was conducted several times, no payment had been made so far. PA Echendu who retired since 2014 told our correspondent that “we are all desperate, we are suffering.. It is unfortunate that Rivers State is still owing pensioners. People have put in over 35years into service in the state with no gratuity as at when due. So many of us have slumped, developed health conditions which are obviously associated with old age but due to non payment of gratuities, most of us have passed on. We have lost over 26 of us this 2017..we are appealing to the Governor to please pay up.. We have children, families and relatives.. We are worse than refugees.”
