Pay our gratuities promptly, Ekiti varsity pensioners urge management Buhari knocked for economic crisis, EFCC defies order with night raid: Weekly news recap

Pensioners of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, have hailed the state governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, for increasing the monthly subvention to the university.

They therefore asked the school management to make their plight a priority by paying their gratuities and pensions promptly.

Oyebanji recently increased the monthly subvention to EKSU from N260m to N410m as well as those of all tertiary institutions in the state.

The Chairman, Nigerian Universities Pensioners Association, EKSU Chapter, Chief Samuel Akinwale, said, “The increase in subvention will ease the workload of expenses placed on the university and help the management to pay pensioners and staff their dues as at when due”.

Akinwale, who spoke in a statement made available in Ado Ekiti on Saturday, by EKSU NUPA Public Relations Officer, Chief Ajibade Olubunmi, after the association’s monthly meeting, also pleaded with the governor to further support the university to be able to defray all the outstanding arrears of gratuities of pensioners.

Akinwale said, “The increase in subvention is commendable as it came at a time when pensioners of the university were groaning under irregular payment of pensions coupled with the poor economic situation in the country”.

Akinwale urged EKSU management “to make the plight of pensioners a priority by paying our gratuities and pensions promptly.”
