Aremu advises Oshiomole to shun N200 million pension

28 November 2016, 19:46

Kaduna - Mr Issa Aremu, General Secretary, National Union of Textile and Garment Workers of Nigeria, on Monday urged ex-governor Adams Oshiomhole to shun the N200 million pension  approved for him by the Edo State Assembly.

Aremu made the appeal in a press statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Kaduna.

“Following the trend in other states, the Edo assembly recently approved a pension benefit for a residential building worth N200million for immediate past governor of the state, while N100 million was approved for his Deputy among other benefits.

“We appeal to former Governor of Edo state, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to make a positive difference by not collecting the life pension benefit as approved by the state assembly.

“Comrade Oshiomhole had beaten the governors to good governance as evidenced by his globally acknowledged record of achievements as governor of Edo state.

“He should therefore not join the former governors on unjust pension that is unnecessary and unsustainable in a recession.

“Edo’s governance report since 2008 points to Nigeria’s renewed optimism.

“Indeed we have witnessed a renaissance which defeats the old pessimism according to which nothing would work.”

Aremu said the former governor must show a difference, by shunning such offers which may revert the esteem in which Nigerians view him.

“This development agenda can only be further deepened and should not be supplanted with corruption.
