We are paid N600 monthly, pensioners cry out in A’Ibom

Members of the South-south Zone of Nigeria Union of Pensioners have decried the dehumanizing situations pensioners are subjected to, lamenting that most of them take home as low as N600 monthly as pension.

The Akwa Ibom State Chairman of Union, Obong E. D Ekpo, who spoke during the zonal conference of the Union held at Pensioners House, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital yesterday, said the greatest problem faced by pensioners in some states of the region is ‘harmonization of pension’.

Ekpo lamented that, “There are pensioners in this state who earn as low as N600 and N800 (six hundred and eight hundred naira) only a month which cannot even pay their transport to their collecting points.
