I ONLY OWE PENSIONERS 4 YEARS ARREEARS SAYS GOV. ADAMS OSHIOMHOLE

I owe pensioners only 4 years arrears - Oshiomhole
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State says his administration is owing only four years of unpaid pensions after settling nine years pen­sioners’ entitlements.
Oshiomhole told the State House corre­spondents in Abuja on Thursday that contrary to the allegation by the opposition, he was not leaving behind a huge liability for his succes­sor.
The opposition Peo­ples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo had al­leged that the present administration’s failure to pay pensioners’ ar­rears might cripple the incoming administra­tion in the state.
“From 1998 when the military left, to 1999 and to the end of 2008 when I took over, that was a period of 13 years.
“So, we found a pension bill of 13 years, arrears of gratuity and pension not paid by the PDP government including the 7,000 people they dismissed.
