After presenting Prado Jeeps and Land cruisers to the Speaker and members of the Imo State House of Assembly, report surfaced that Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state was planning to slash the entitlements of pensioners.
According to the report, plans were underway to compel the pensioners in the state to forfeit 60% of their entitlements and take home only 40%.
The pensioners are not happy with this and have taken to the streets to express their displeasure.
The retirees who are protesting the governor’s decision to slash their pension arrears by 60%, barricaded the roundabout leading to the Government House in Owerri.
