Osun Pensioners Protest Over Unpaid Entitlements

Retired teachers today (Monday) in Iwo, Osun State protested the alleged non-payment of their pension and gratuity by the state government.

They stormed the streets of the town chant different anti-government songs to express their displeasure for the alleged failure of the state government to settle their entitlements, city mirror reports.

Armed with placards with varying inscriptions, the senior citizens stormed Iwo East LCDA secretariat, Olomowewe.

They said the state government had refused to pay pension since 2016 despite doing a contributory pension while in service.

Some of the placards they displayed carried inscriptions such as: “Oyetola pay us our money”, ” Oyetola this suffering is too much”, “Oyetola stop lieing”, among others.

The leader of the peaceful demonstration, Okunlola Joseph Oludare, explained that the state government has refused to pay their contributory pension since 2016. He said those affected are members of the Osun State Contributory Pension Retirees.

“They should stop telling lies, they have not paid us. Some of us are sick, some have died because they cant afford food. Schools are resuming now and our children will remain at home because we cant afford to pay school fees,” he lamented.

Another protester said: “this government (Osun Government) need to stop telling the people of Osun that they have paid pensions, when in the real sense, they have not.

You will see 100 billion in the news, yet we dont get paid, so who are they paying?” She queried.
