Senator Hope Uzodimma, Governor of Imo State, reminded the leadership of the Nigerian Union of Pensioners on Tuesday that those who are not collecting their pensions are at risk. “fraudulent salary earners, victims of irregular salaries, those involved in padded pensions, double salaries and workers with irregular employment history.”
On Tuesday, April 25, 2023, Uzodimma was paid a courtesy call by the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Nigerian Union of Pensioners in Imo State at the New Exco Chambers Government House.
He told the leadership of Imo State’s labor and pensioners that the state government has begun working on the arrangements for the payment of pensioners’ gratuities and check-off dues.
Uzodinma also asked the Accountant General to begin paying retirees’ Check-off dues, stressing that the payment had been postponed due to the pensioners’ irregular actions.
He commended the Organized Labour for standing their ground not to be used to fight the government and as such, “saved the government the problem of spending resources in the wrong direction.”
Uzodimma who acknowledged that the Civil Service is the brain box of the government said that “it will be better for the Unions to always work with the government to allow peace, progress and development of the workers and the Civil Service.”
The governor asked the Head of Service, Barr. Raymond Ucheoma, to guarantee that the processes for completing worker promotions are completed within seven days, as advised by the HOS.
In expressing gratitude to the Governor, the Chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress, Imo chapter, Pastor Philip Nwansi, vowed to work with him on behalf of his team and the labor in Imo State to ensure that Imo workers receive what is due to them.
