Pensioners in Ogun State, have held a one-day prayer session seeking God’s intervention over the alleged refusal of Governor Dapo Abiodun  to pay their 68 billion Naira Gratuities and Allowances.

The senior citizens, under the aegis of Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP) rendered prayers in both Islamic and Christian ways.

Speaking with newsmen after the prayers, chairman, Ogun NUP, Mr Waheed Oloyede said the union resolved to invoke the powers of God on the obstacles that have so far prevented the state governor from addressing their plights, having been convinced that there is nothing prayers cannot do.

He listed four demands of the pensioners to include increase in the Pensioners monthly take home; increase in the quarterly release of gratuity From 500 Million naira to 1 billion naira; release of their deducted Contributory Pensions to their respective Pensions Fund Administrator (PFAs), as well as the constitution of the Pensions Committee which will Administer the affairs of their union.
