Imo State chapter of Nigeria Union of Pensioners, NUP, has described the state government’s move to recalculate or reduce the pensions of retirees, despite recent judgment of the National Industrial Court, as “insensitive, wicked and unlawful.” The pensioners, in a press release signed by their state chairman and principal state secretary, Chief James D.

This is in spite of several bailout funds advanced by the Federal Government, to clear arrears of pensions and gratuities.” Read more
