Ondo Retirees Berate Mimiko For Non-Payment of Salaries, Pensions

Labour retirees in Ondo State have berated Governor Olusegun Mimiko for his “refusal to pay salaries and pensions”.

The Labour Veterans, led by former Labour Union leader, Pastor Oyekan Arije, said this when they visited the All Progressives Congress (APC) State Chairman, Isaac Kekemeke.

The senior citizens were at Kekemeke’s office to show support for the APC in the forthcoming governorship election.

Arije was former Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to Mimiko on Due Process.

The retirees told the APC Chairman that “never before in the state’s history has public workers gone this long without being paid let alone celebrate the Yuletide bleakfully”.

They decried their members’ sufferings, saying they helped Mimiko to win in 2009.

According to the labour leaders, Mimiko is the first governor that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) would endorse and support.

They, however, declared that since the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has ruined the state, they have decided to work with the APC by ensuring that the party wins.

Kekemeke thanked the retirees for their visit and praised their doggedness in their struggle to continue to fight Labour’s cause even after retirement.

He praised their boldness for supporting the APC and enjoined them to continue to bear the present suffering the PDP-led government has brought on citizens, until “the APC government will come to change our stories for good next year”.
