Retirees Protest In Port Harcourt, Rivers State Over Unpaid Gratuity & Pensions by midolian(m): 9:32am On Aug 09, 2018
Latest report as retired civil servants in Rivers State have taken to the streets of Port Harcourt to protest unpaid three years gratuity and pension owed them.

Meanwhile the protesters had placards with inscriptions like; “If you are Mr Project, Know that Retired civic servants are major project”, “Mr Project Pay us our Pension because our people are homeless and our children are out of school”, “We are dying.”

The protesters, who were chanting anti government songs, demanded for the payment of their three years gratuity and pension, just as they asked for the removal of contributory pension law.

The leader of the protesters, Lucky Atti, at the office of the Rivers State Head of Service demanded the abrogation of the Contributory Pension Law, which he claimed was the cause of the hardship of pensioners.

Atti said majority of pensioners had been suffering from different forms of terminal ailment in the past three years.

“It is not a curse to be a retired civil servant in Rivers State. It not a crime. Many of us have served for as much as 33years and here we are with nothing.

“We can no longer fend for our families. The Governor should do something about this before we all die of hunger and sicknesses.

“We have written to Governor Nyesom Wike on several occasions. We have even met with stakeholders, including the religious leaders, to help us talk to him but all to no avail. We have been on this for the past 3years,” he said.

Addressing the pensioners, Rivers State Head of Service, Rufus Godwins blamed the past administration of former Governor Rotimi Amaechi for the backlog of pension allowances.

According to Godwins, “These allowances are owed by the past administration. The past administration did not remit the deduction of pensions to the pensioners’ agents. But I will take your case to the Governor”.

Gov. Wike, my fellow madridsta shocked No comment till further notice.

The protesters should go home and give Gov. Wike some time to attend to them.

This man has enough money to give Fayose to finance rigging of Ekiti state Gubernatorial election but has no money to pay people old enough to be his father..

Isnt it obvious most of these PDP members have given their conscience to the devil for free?

It's now a crime to retire in this country, that's why you see many people falsifying their date of birth. People will work in this type of harsh labour condition in this country and will still not get their retirement benefits when they retire. But the politicians who loot the country dry are still placed on life long entitlements and benefits.

He used their money for Ekiti election, an election that has nothing to do with the development of River state. See the result now.

Past administration may be responsible for the backlog, during 2015 election no money was coming from the state, up till date our NYSC allawee has not been paid. Amaechi only stop payment at batch 12A. I never like Wike but this is not his fault, Amaechi my man messed up. But wike should also continue from there, This Amaechi and Wike fight masses are the one suffering.
