The Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives and the candidate of Labour Party in the coming July 16th governorship election in Osun state, Rt. Hon. Lasun Yussuff has assured that his administration will be highly committed to the welfare of the Pensioners and workers in the state.
He observed that the old citizens who have toiled day and night in serving the state needed to be given their entitlements as at when due, adding that, any government that fails to Accord due respect the pensioners would be doing great deservice to it’s government and to the people in general.
Rt Hon Lasun Yussuf stated this when he visited the state office of Nigeria Union of Pensioners, NUP in Osogbo with his campaign team recently to seek for the Pensioners support of the entire pensioners in the state.
According to him, payment of pension arrears and other emoluments for the pensioners should not be seeing by any government as achievements but rather categorised as normal thing to do for the aged who had suffered in the past.
He stated, ” My administration, if elected would do all within it’s reach to better the lots of the Pensioners in the state for they have contributed their quotas towards the development of the state and needed to be treated as senior citizens”.
