Retired staff of Imo Broadcasting Corporation (IBC) Owerri have called on Imo Government to settle the arrears of their pensions which according to them have accumulated for almost four years.

The retired workers acting under the aegis of the “IBC Pensioners Association” said they are the worst hit in the state on the issue of pension arrears.

The call is contained in a communique jointly signed by their Chairman- Mr Chidi Madu and the Secretary – Rev. Dr Richard Nwoko after a meeting and made available to newsmen in Owerri on Monday.

They said government response would spare them further agony and hardship.

The former workers in the five-point communique said they were being owned for 46 months.

They frowned at the document being circulated in the state compelling them to forget 60 per cent of their pensions.

Quoting the Federal Pension Law and Section 2010 (1) Section 16 (2) (D) of the nation’s 1999 constitution, the pensioners insisted that their entitlements should not be altered for any reason.

They said they are rejecting the payment of the proposed 40 per cent of the total accumulated pension arrears.

The workers also regretted the non-implementation of the Federal Government harmonization salary award of six per cent of 2003, 15 per cent of 2007 as well as other increments.
