Five Southwest States Owe Pensioners N330b, Says Union by oshozondii: 8:24am On Nov 24
States in the Southwest geopolitical zone, except Lagos State, owe pensioners N330 billion in pensions and gratuities.

The Southwest Zone of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), made the declaration in Ibadan, Oyo State, yesterday at the end of its zonal meeting.

Its spokesman, Dr. Olusegun Abatan, told reporters at the end of the meeting that Osun led the debtor states with unpaid pensions and gratuities amounting to N145 billion.

He noted that the issue of unpaid pensions arrears and gratuities in Osun got compounded during the tenure of Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, as governor of the state.

He said there had not been any improvement since Aregbesola left the office of governor.

Abatan said Ondo, Ogun and Ekiti states owed N58 billion, N55 billion and N40 billion.

He added that Oyo State owed N43 billion before Governor Seyi Makinde took office in May 2019.

He noted that Makinde had paid about N11 billion out of the N43 billion owed by his predecessors.

Abatan said Lagos State did not belong to the group of debtor states because it was the first to embrace the Contributory Pension Scheme.

Nigerian politicians are all the same. From north to south, east to west, no difference.

It's rather surprising to see tribes and religions fight themselves instead of all Nigerians demanding that the political class must do what they promised to do, step down or be voted out.

How can a leader sleep at night knowing that they owe old men and women (veterans) who depend on pensions to survive?

The Governors should pay the Pensioners !

The States HOA should even make a law to make sure the Governor only receives his Salary and benefits

after paying his workers and Pensioners

South West gov'rs are even good. South East govrs are something else. Politics made my pops not to reach perm. Sec. Since he retired they haven't been paid. Omoh. Everyday he will be calling and complaining. When they were paid. It was half salary they paid him. Had to open farm for him so he won't be feeling all these nonsense again. Atleast he has birds and other animals that will take his time throughout the whole day.

The oloriburuku's that call themselves awoists are finding it difficult to pay pensioners while they themselves live extra large. If not for Seyi that is paying back a huge debt of about 43Billion of grautities and also paying them their pensions every month,they were turned to beggers under the previous administration

In Oyo state,come 2023, pensioners are saying they are giving seyi 100percent of their votes

Wickedness of the highest level.
And many of these grandmas and grandpas died while waiting for their pension.


May all politicians that raped our nation and took her 100 years back with blind looting and stealing never end well in life.
Including their supporters.
So shall it be as long as God lives....

One of my 1000 reasons to support Jagaban! He embraced the Contributory Pension from day one (2004)! Lagos workers and pensioners not owed at any point in time! Jagaban set a template in Lagos that all his successors are following! I am not blind to all these! Jagaban is not a failure! He has never been! Buhari and his brothers decided to go off Jagaban's way saying they don't want any control by anybody, hence his failure! Look, I am a young Nigerian in his early 40s. I knw all these 3 major contenders, I can assure you all that the best of them to ensure good governance is Jagaban! Jagaban lived in the US for some years b4 coming to Nigeria. He knows what a system is! He set it in Lagos. Lagos is supposed to be a country not a state! All I want is a system that works. All I want is light to be fixed. Economy to thrive. Security to be intact. Education to progress. All these thrived in Lagos under Tinubu. All ur excuses of old age, sickness are dull and insufficient not to support efficiency! The rest candidates even know that Jagaban has all it takes to fix Nigeria! Nigeria shall be great again! BAT! BAT!! BAT!!! Incoming president!

Eat your own & eat other people that have worked for years own too. Pension that is supposed to take care of the retirees. It is small oh! But you greedy, wicked & heartless people in charge of the money will eat it. Una millions no do una. I feel like crying. Just go to any pension office & see how our father's & mother's suffer there to collect their hard years worked money.

No region has better leaders; they are all the same.

In a sane society, the people will be protesting against bad leadership.

All we get in Nigeria is senseless e-fight and people comparing whose mediocre leader is better than the other.

There is no progressive state in Nigeria...


All governance have been about selfish interests only...


It's about those in power and their cronies...

All they think, dream about is how to milk the state coffers dry....Nothing more.

The sad thing is the civil servants that aid them in this criminality....they have forgotten they will also become a pensioner one day...

The pensioners are also reaping from their bad deeds...their failure to check these trends when they were still active in service..

Who will break this curse

Haha! Their interest is on why Peter Obi after paying pensioners their salaries and also cleared the 2 years salaries owed by Mbadinauju administration, had to invested £12.6 million of state's fund for the good of Anambrians! I am to say that you people now behave like people without honour!
