Osun State retirees under the aegis of Contributory Pensioners on Friday stormed Osogbo, the capital of the state to protest over  unpaid five years pension.

The retirees stated that the state government under the administration of Rauf Aregbesola as the governor denied them their entitlements for five years. The retires converged on  the front of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters via the newly built Nigerian Correctional Service, Osun State Headquarters set to be commissioned by  Aregbesola, the Minister for Interior.

The protesters carried placards with different inscriptions. Some of the inscriptions read: “Aregbesola, not a celebrated hero”, “Since 2016 Contributory Pension not remitted”, “Aregbesola where is the N60 billion contributed by pensioners”, “ Osun State Government pay us our bonds”, “Aregbesola mismanaged tranche 1,2,3,4 of Paris Club loan” and many more.

Speaking to newsmen, the chairman of the association, Comrade Gbenga Oyadare, said, “the purpose of protesting is to make our plight known with what the immediate past governor, Rauf Aregbesola has done to us. We are waiting to collect our entitlement for the past five years and to date, we have never been paid.
