 Pensioners under the aegis of Forum of Contributory Pensioners in Osun State, on Tuesday, appealed to Governor Rauf Aregbesola to “without further delay pay their pensions.

They made the appeal in a release jointly signed by the teaching and civil service coordinators, Comrades Samuel Adeosun and Gbadebo Adegboye, in Osogbo, the state capital.

The pensioners who lamented that they are suffering, noted that they have forwarded about 15 letters to the government, but all to no avail.

“We have to pathetically observe that, the Contributory Pensioners that are being deprived of their retirement benefits are now suffering from unimaginable degrees and dimensions of abject poverty.

“Arising from this unwholesome situations, our prayers and humble appeal are that, the state government of Osun under the benevolent leadership of the Governor, should graciously put sufficient funds into the scheme, being the shortfall of the state government’s counterpart funding, enough to cater for the Contributory Pensioners.

“This kind gesture by the state government will undoubtedly rescue us, the CPS pensioners, and their dependants from poverty, suffering and current life of deprivations, wants and penury.

The pensioners however appealed to the government to consider the release of Bond Certificates to the PFAs of the Contributory Retirees who had completed processing of their retirement papers since January 2015 till date.

They urged the government to also consider the payment of accrued interests on monthly Contributory pension deductions between October to December 2014, which were remitted in July 2017, and remittance of monthly deductions since January 2015 till date with the attendant interest. (Blueprint)
