Pensioners laud Sanwo-Olu over increased pension

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu elicited praise from the Nigerian Union of Pensioners (NUP) in the State for approving 33 per cent increment for pensioners under Defined Benefits Scheme (Pay As You Go).

NUP hailed him for the approval of the payment of a balance of 25 per cent rent allowance for officers on GL 07 and above, who retired from May 2000 to August 2004.

The pensioners commended the governor at Southwest Leader’s Zonal meeting in Lagos.

State Chairman Oluremi Johnson described Sanwo-Olu as a pensioner-friendly governor.

“We thank him for our monthly pensions being regularly paid and for the online verification exercise, which was remarkably successful,” he said.

He said they were expecting other health programmes approved by the governor.

Johnson also commended the Oyo State governor but called on Ekiti, Ogun and Ondo governors to help pensioners.
