Apologize to Osun pensioners’ – APC tells Adeleke

Published

on

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in Osun has called on Governor Ademola Adeleke to tender an apology to the pensioners in the state for failing to implement one of his campaign promises.

The Osun APC revealled that Adeleke promised to pay the backlog of contributory pensions within six months of his administration but has not yet done so.

The state chairman of the APC, Tajudeen Lawal, claimed that the Adeleke-led government was fraught with deceit in the execution of its campaign promises.

“The information about the mere approval for the payment of the N2.1bn CPS bond for the retirees showed that the Adeleke administration is lacking in the sincerity of purpose as the so-called pension bond would be the second time of such in about nine months in the life of the PDP administration in the state,” Lawal said in a statement on Thursday.

“If Adeleke does not have anything to hide, he should separate the figures his government is allocating to the primary school teachers, to the civil servants, retired employees in the parastatals, secondary school teachers who retired.”

“If we calculate N500m for the state alone in nine months for the Contributory Pension Scheme, it amounts to N4.5bn.

“If we calculate the same for the local governments, it is N4.5bn, making the total that the Adeleke administration is due for, at the minimum, to be N9bn.

“If Adeleke pays N500m continuously in 48 months of his tenure, he can only pay N24bn at the end of his tenure which is a far cry to the outstanding liabilities at the state and the local government levels.”

He also stated former governor, Oyetola paid the Contributory Pension Scheme of the civil servants, parastatals and secondary school retirees from 2016 to April 2018.

Lawal also questioned why it has been difficult for Governor Adeleke to paste the names of the beneficiaries of the questionable pension bonds as it was the practice during his predecessor’s tenure if truly he has nothing to hide.
