The Peace Ambassador said it is shameful and embarrassing that workers in Delta state pay roll are charged from source their contributory pension but very ironical that Delta state government don’t remit its own counterpart fund in the pension scheme which makes it difficult for workers to access their pension and other gratuities benefits accrue them when they retire from the state civil service.

According to Comrade Mulade statistics and investigation carried out showed that Delta state government don’t remit their contribution monthly for workers pensions but goes ahead to remove that of workers from their salaries every month across all civil servants in Delta state, ministry and agencies, saying if not curtailed now may lead to more human casualties thereby affecting the state population of retired but skillful Senior citizens expertise.

The Niger Delta environmentalist advised Dr. Okowa to show good example by clearing teachers backlog pensions as well as others and put an end to four to five years time before retired people get their pensions benefits as part of strong finishing legacies to be left behind after his successful second term in office.
