Charges Ogun govt to prioritise pensioners’ welfare

The Bishop of Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Remo Central, Ogun State, Rt. Rev. Olu Akinola, has said the Federal Government is not telling Nigerians the real truth about the state of the nation.

Bishop Akinola stated this during his sermon at the burial and outing service for Felicia Ambali, mother of Special Adviser to Ogun State Governor on Politics, Biyi Adeleye, held at Methodist Church, Isara-Remo.

The cleric, who lamented that truthfulness is no longer the order of the day in the country, urged Federal Government to tell Nigerians the truth for people to know where to support the government.

He, however, appealed to the government to take the welfare of the elderly as paramount by paying pensioners as and when due.

In his remarks, Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, described the deceased as a great woman whose seed is part of the pillars of the current administration in the state.

While commiserating with the children and the family, Abiodun urged them to take solace in the fact that their mother lived a good life.

On his part, Adeleye said the society and the government must at all levels take care of the elderly who have paid their dues to the development of the country.

He described his late mother as a great and hard-working woman, who will be greatly missed by all.
