Imo Pension Crises: Pensioners, Govt Trade Blames

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Pension crisis has continued to rock Imo State with the pensioners and state government pointing fingers of accusations and counter accusations at each other.

While the Association of Pensioners is insisting that the government has continuously neglected the plight of its members by not paying them what is due them, the state government is accusing the Association of not appreciating the effort it is making even in this time of recession.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy in the state, Mr Obinna Nshirim, said while some members were cooperating with the government in the solution, proffered, the leadership of the association was the clog in the wheel of progress.

It can only be hoped that a lasting solution will be found and soon too, to avert the impending protest by the pensioners.
