Adegbola Urges Gov Abiodun To Prior​i​tize Workers' Welfare

Government of Prince Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has been advised to look Into the issues of contributory pension deductions of staff salary that is not remitted for about 150 months.

Prince John Adegbola, a People Democratic Party (PDP) 2023 Governorship Aspirant in Ogun State made this known during a Punch newspaper review which lasted for about 30minutes on his  Facebook live page on Wednesday Oct 13, 2021.

Adegbola said it's becoming worrisome and of great concern if any government can continue to suffer workers on what they worked for adding that the employees are not asking the government to pay them extra it's something they have worked for and it's due to them.

The Awori born politician who contributed his opinion on the interview of the state NLC Chairman, Comrade Emmanuel Bankole on Wednesday Punch over the non payment of 150 months contributory pension and other problems facing the workers called on the state government as a matter of urgency to look into the issues.

Adegbola who also preferred a better solution said on the issue of cooperative deductions, the cooperative societies should have a better arrangements where banks helps in deducting from their members directly and not the government. 

He added that it will be a shameful on the government if they continue with their lackadaisical attitude of deducting and not remitting, explaining that there are three deductions not remitted which included, Pensions contribution, Cooperative deduction and Housing fund.

It would be recalled that recently local government pensioners also stormed Governor's office to protest late payment of monthly pensions,  Payment of gratuities, Reviewed of monthly pensions, Resuscitation of board of bureau of local government pension, Opening of communication line with the Governor among others.

Adegbola therefore called on the state government to further look into the welfare of the workers adding that the N500 million that Governor Abiodun is paying quarterly  to offset arrears of salaries and pensions owed retirees in the state is not enough.
