Ahead of the 2019 general elections, pensioners in Imo State have staged a protest against Governor Rochas Okorocha, alleging that his government was owing them 34 months pension arrears.
Onyegbulam said: “The federal government released N12.6billion and ordered that pensioners must be there before this money must be released to the governor. Unfortunately, some pensioners went and signed and the governor said he had given us N5 billion.
“That is the first payment he had made since eight months and that is what triggered this demonstration. We are not happy he owes the least worker in Imo 34 months arrears. Some are 17, some are 16 months arrears.
