PENSIONAERS IN IMO STATE GIVES SEVEN – DAY ULTIMATUN TO THE GOVERNOR
According to The Sun News, the Imo state pensioners on Tuesday 30th June, 2020, gave the Governor of the state Governor Hope Uzodinma seven day ultimatum to pay up their arrears of four months.
The pensioners who threatened to fill up the Government house if the Governor fails to meet their demand if the ultimatum elapse, have been seen blocking the main gate of the Government house amidst armed security personnel chanting solidarity songs.
The Imo state Chapter Secretary of Pension Intervention Committee of the Nigerian Union of Pensioners Morris Amaechi while speaking to journalist say “we are here again to tell the Governor Uzodinma to pay us our money, it is our money and not a gift”.
He added that last week Tuesday, the Secretary to the State Government Cosmos Iwu promised the pensioners of their payment, only for the Commissioner of Information, Declan Emelumba to say on radio that the Government isn’t owing any pensioner.
Thus the statement made by Emelumba attracted the pensioners attention hence, the issuance of a seven day ultimatum to the Governor to pay their arrears or expect them in the state house again.
